Confined electron states in two-dimensional HgTe in magnetic field: Quantum dot versus quantum ring behavior
We investigate the electron states and optical absorption in square- and hexagonal-shaped two-dimensional (2D) HgTe quantum dots and quantum rings in the presence of a perpendicular magnetic field.
On Optical Properties of CdTe/ZnTe Quantum Rings
The optical properties of CdTe/ZnTe self-assembled quantum rings as functions of the height and inner diameter are investigated with a finite element method based on the linear elasticity theory of
Preformed pairs in flat Bloch bands
In a flat Bloch band the kinetic energy is quenched and single particles cannot propagate since they are localized due to destructive interference. Whether this remains true in the presence of
Size and temperature effects on electric properties of CdTe/ZnTe quantum rings
The electronic properties of CdTe/ZnTe quantum rings (QRs) are investigated as functions of size and temperature using an eight-band strain-dependent k·p Hamiltonian. The size effects of diameter and
Aharonov–Bohm Effect in the Photodetachment Microscopy of Hydrogen Negative Ions in an Electric Field
The Aharonov–Bohm (AB) effect in the photodetachment microscopy of the H− ions in an electric field has been studied on the basis of the semiclassical theory. After the H− ion is irradiated by a

Abstract We analyze for the first time the coupled influence of band mixing, strain, and piezoelectricity on electronic structure, eigenstates, and optical transition strengths for InAs/GaAs
Quantum transport in nanostructures: From the effects of decoherence on localization to magnetotransport in two-dimensional electron systems
In this thesis, quantum transport in nanostructures is studied theoretically by means of the nonequilibrium Green's function (NEGF) method. Starting with coherent systems, we discuss ballistic

We study the effects of the structural parameters such as the wetting layer thickness and the size of self-assembled CdTe/ZnTe quantum rings (QRs) under an external electric field on the exciton
Lead position and lead-ring coupling effects on the spin-dependent transport properties in a two-dimensional network of quantum nanorings in the presence of Rashba spin–orbit interaction
The effects of lead positions and lead-ring coupling regimes are investigated for spin-related transport through a two-dimensional network of quantum nanorings (2DNQRs) considering Rashba spin–orbit


Strong Aharonov-Bohm oscillations in GaAs two-dimensional holes
The authors measured Aharonov-Bohm resistance oscillations [Phys. Rev. 115, 485 (1959)] in a shallow two-dimensional GaAs hole ring structure, defined by local anodic surface oxidation. The amplitude
Aharonov-Bohm oscillations with spin: evidence for Berry's phase.
A comparison of the experimental data with results of simulations demonstrates that the origin of the extra structure in the Aharonov-Bohm effect is the geometric (Berry) phase acquired by the carrier spin as it travels around the ring.
Direct observation of the Aharonov-Casher phase.
Nonmonotonic phase changes indicating that an additional phase factor modifies the electron wave function are associated with the Aharonov-Casher effect.
Ensemble-Average Spectrum of Aharonov-Bohm Conductance Oscillations: Evidence for Spin-Orbit-Induced Berry’s Phase
We have experimentally investigated Aharonov-Bohm conductance oscillations in two-dimensional rings in the presence of a strong Rashba spin-orbit interaction. The peak of the ensemble average
Spin-orbit Berry phase in conducting rings.
The spin Berry phase can be observed in conductance experiments on rings of noncentrosymmetric materials. It results in destructive interference and in the shift of the Aharonov-Bohm oscillations.
Experimental demonstration of the time reversal Aharonov-Casher effect.
The time reversal Aharonov-Casher (AC) effect is demonstrated in small arrays of mesoscopic semiconductor rings using an electrostatic gate and the AC phase is mapped to the spin-orbit interaction parameter alpha and it is consistent with Shubnikov-de Haas analysis.

We study Berry phase effects on conductance properties of diffusive mesoscopic conductors, which are caused by an electron spin moving through an orientationally inhomogeneous magnetic field.
Significance of Electromagnetic Potentials in the Quantum Theory
In this paper, we discuss some interesting properties of the electromagnetic potentials in the quantum domain. We shall show that, contrary to the conclusions of classical mechanics, there exist
