Multiband transport in superconductors is interesting both from an academic as well as an application point of view. It has been postulated that interband scattering can significantly affect the carrier dynamics in these materials. In this article we present a detailed study of the electrical transport properties of the high-mobility two-dimensional electron gas residing at the interface of LaAlO$_3$/SrTiO$_3$, a prototypical multi-band superconductor. We show, through careful measurements of…

Resistance fluctuation spectroscopy of thin films of 3D topological insulator BiSbTeSe1.6
Despite several years of studies, the origin of slow-kinetics of charge-carriers at the surface-states of strong topological insulators remains abstruse. In this article, we report on studies of
Effect of spin-orbit interaction on the vortex dynamics in LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interfaces near the superconducting transition
Controlling spin-orbit interaction and its effect on superconductivity has been a long-standing problem in two-dimensional inversion symmetry broken superconductors. An open challenge is to

Despite the concerted effort of several research groups, a detailed experimental account of defect dynamics in high-quality single-and few-layer transition-metal dichalcogenides remains elusive. In

We discuss methods of built-in carrier density control in SrTiO3/LaTiO3/SrTiO3 heterostructures that exhibit quasi-two-dimensional carrier confinement in an interfacial quantum well. Unlike the

A universal critical density underlying the physics of electrons at the LaAlO₃/SrTiO₃ interface.
It is shown, using magnetotransport measurements, that a universal Lifshitz transition between d orbitals of different symmetries lies at the core of the observed phenomena, and the fascinating behaviour observed so far in these oxides follows from a small but fundamental set of bands.
Field-effect control of superconductivity and Rashba spin-orbit coupling in top-gated LaAlO3/SrTiO3 devices
This work reports on the realisation of a field-effect LaAlO3/SrTiO3 device, whose physical properties, including superconductivity and SOC, can be tuned over a wide range by a top-gate voltage and derives a phase diagram, which emphasises aField-effect-induced superconductor-to-insulator quantum phase transition.

Gate-tunable polarized phase of two-dimensional electrons at the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface
Two distinct phases in the space of carrier density and magnetic field are identified and the observed interplay between the two phases indicates the nature of magnetism at the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface as both having an intrinsic origin and being tunable.
Electric field control of the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface ground state
The electrostatic tuning of the carrier density allows an on/off switching of superconductivity and drives a quantum phase transition between a two-dimensional superconducting state and an insulating state, which opens the way to the development of new mesoscopicsuperconducting circuits.
Interface superconductor with gap behaviour like a high-temperature superconductor
Tunnel spectroscopy with planar junctions is used to measure the behaviour of the electronic spectral density of states as a function of carrier density, implying that the smooth continuation of the superconducting gap into pseudogap-like behaviour could be a general property of 2D superconductivity.

Analysis of data in the framework of Maekawa-Fukuyama theory allows extraction of the SOI critical field (H(SO) and time scale (τ(SO)) whose evolution with Cr concentration is similar as with the increasing negative gate voltage in LAO/STO interface.
A high-mobility electron gas at the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 heterointerface
