Electron Breakdown An electron possesses charge and spin. In general, these properties are confined to the electron. However, in strongly interacting many-body electronic systems, such as one-dimensional wires, it has long been theorized that the charge and spin should separate. There have been tantalizing glimpses of this separation experimentally, but questions remain. Jompol et al. (p. 597) looked at the tunneling current between an array of one-dimensional wires and a two-dimensional… 
Waveform measurement of charge- and spin-density wavepackets in a chiral Tomonaga–Luttinger liquid
The spatial separation of charge and spin densities in one-dimensional electron systems is the hallmark of Tomonaga–Luttinger physics. Waveform measurements now provide direct evidence for
Observing separate spin and charge Fermi seas in a strongly correlated one-dimensional conductor
An electron is usually considered to have only one form of kinetic energy, but could it have more, for its spin and charge, by exciting other electrons? In one dimension (1D), the physics of
Waveform measurement of charge-and spin-density wave packets in a Tomonaga – Luttinger liquid
In contrast to a free-electron system, a Tomonaga–Luttinger (TL) liquid in a one-dimensional (1D) electron system hosts charge and spin excitations as independent entities. When an electron wave
Tomonaga–Luttinger liquid in the edge channels of a quantum spin Hall insulator
Quantum spin Hall insulators are two-dimensional materials that host conducting helical electron states strictly confined to the one-dimensional boundaries. These edge channels are protected by
Time-resolved observation of spin-charge deconfinement in fermionic Hubbard chains
The dynamical deconfinement of spin and charge excitations in real space after the removal of a particle in Fermi-Hubbard chains of ultracold atoms is reported on.
Tomonaga-Luttinger Liquid in a Box: Electrons Confined within MoS2 Mirror-Twin Boundaries
Two- or three-dimensional metals are usually well described by weakly interacting, fermionic quasiparticles. This concept breaks down in one dimension due to strong Coulomb interactions. There,
Microscopy of spin-charge dynamics in Fermi-Hubbard chains
Obtaining a microscopic understanding of the dynamics in strongly correlated electronic systems has remained a challenge for many decades. The interplay between the spin and charge degrees of
Cooling low-dimensional electron systems into the microkelvin regime
Two-dimensional electron gases (2DEGs) with high mobility, engineered in semiconductor heterostructures host a variety of ordered phases arising from strong correlations, which emerge at sufficiently
Gross violation of the Wiedemann–Franz law in a quasi-one-dimensional conductor
It is shown experimentally that the ratio of the thermal and electrical Hall conductivities in the metallic phase of quasi-one-dimensional Li0.9Mo6O17 diverges with decreasing temperature, reaching a value five orders of magnitude larger than that found in conventional metals.


Observation of spin and charge collective modes in one-dimensional metallic chains
The many-body theory of interacting electrons in solids establishes the existence of elementary excitations, named quasi-particles, which show a one-to-one correspondence with non-interacting
Luttinger-liquid behaviour in carbon nanotubes
Electron transport in conductors is usually well described by Fermi-liquid theory, which assumes that the energy states of the electrons near the Fermi level EF are not qualitatively altered by
Momentum-resolved tunneling between a Luttinger liquid and a two-dimensional electron gas
We consider momentum resolved tunneling between a Luttinger liquid and a two-dimensional electron gas as a function of transverse magnetic field. We include the effects of an anomalous exponent and
Momentum-resolved tunneling between Luttinger liquids
We study tunneling between two nearby cleaved edge quantum wires in a perpendicular magnetic field. Due to Coulomb forces between electrons, the wires form a strongly interacting pair of Luttinger
Spin-Charge Separation and Localization in One Dimension
We report on measurements of quantum many-body modes in ballistic wires and their dependence on Coulomb interactions, obtained by tunneling between two parallel wires in an GaAs/AlGaAs
Distinct spinon and holon dispersions in photoemission spectral functions from one-dimensional SrCuO2
Spin and charge are inseparable traits of an electron, but in one-dimensional solids, theory predicts their separation into collective modes—as independent excitation quanta (or particles) called
Interference and zero-bias anomaly in tunneling between Luttinger-liquid wires
We present theoretical calculations and experimental measurements which reveal the Luttinger-liquid (LL) nature of elementary excitations in a system consisting of two quantum wires connected by a
Tunneling between parallel two-dimensional electron gases.
The tunneling between two parallel two-dimensional electron gases (2DEGs) has been investigated as a function of temperature T, carrier density n, and the applied perpendicular magnetic field B, and various theoretical predictions have been examined.

The consistency of recent photoemission experiments on low-dimensional conductors with a Luttinger liquid picture which then would suggest very strong long range interactions is discussed.
