An indirect exciton is a bound state of an electron and a hole in spatially separated layers. Two-dimensional indirect excitons can be created optically in heterostructures containing double quantum wells or atomically thin semiconductors. We study theoretically transmission of such bosonic quasiparticles through nano- constrictions. We show that quantum transport phenomena, e.g., conductance quantization, single-slit diffraction, two-slit interference, and the Talbot effect, are experimentally…

Signature of Spin-Resolved Quantum Point Contact in p-Type Trilayer WSe2 van der Waals Heterostructure.

In this study, an electrostatically induced quantum confinement structure, so-called quantum point contact, has been realized in a p-type trilayer tungsten diselenide-based van der Waals



Drift mobility of long-living excitons in coupled GaAs quantum wells

The authors report on high-mobility transport of indirect excitons in coupled GaAs quantum wells. A voltage-tunable in-plane potential gradient is defined for excitons by exploiting the quantum

Electric‐field‐induced exciton transport in coupled quantum well structures

We report a conceptionally new approach to achieve electrostatically induced transport and confinement for spatially indirect excitons. Experimentally, exciton transport is demonstrated in an

Scalable interconnections for remote indirect exciton systems based on acoustic transport

Excitons, quasiparticles consisting of electron-hole pairs bound by the Coulomb interaction, are a potential medium for the processing of photonic information in the solid state. Information

High-temperature superfluidity with indirect excitons in van der Waals heterostructures.

A design for artificially structured materials to rival the present record for high-critical temperature cuprate superconductors by exhibiting macroscopic occupation of a quantum state and vanishing viscosity at high temperatures.

Anomalous Conductances in an Ultracold Quantum Wire.

This work analyzes the recently measured anomalous transport properties of an ultracold gas through a ballistic constriction and finds the spin conductance being suppressed by superconductivity.

Exact two-body quantum dynamics of an electron-hole pair in semiconductor coupled quantum wells: A time-dependent approach

We simulate the time-dependent coherent dynamics of a spatially indirect exciton (an electron-hole pair with the two particles confined in different layers) in a GaAs coupled quantum well system. We

Spin transport of indirect excitons in GaAs coupled quantum wells

Spin transport of indirect excitons in GaAs/AlGaAs coupled quantum wells was observed by measuring the spatially resolved circular polarization of the exciton emission. The exciton spin transport
