The current-carrying edge channels of the quantum Hall effect are a widely used toolbox to perform a rich variety of quantum electronics experiments in which one seeks, inspired by quantum optics, to coherently manipulate the trajectories of single electronic wave packets. This so-called field of electron quantum optics has recently shown significant progress towards fully quantum coherent electronics using propagating single quasiparticles. However, contrary to photons, electrons are Fermionic…

Ballistic hot-electron transport in a quantum Hall edge channel defined by a double gate

Ballistic transport of hot electrons in a quantum Hall edge channel is attractive for studying electronic analog of quantum optics, where the edge potential profile is an important parameter that

Auger-spectroscopy in quantum Hall edge channels and the missing energy problem

It is shown that energy can be distributed between distant parts of the sample, which may provide a resolution to an outstanding puzzle concerning energy conservation in transport through quantum Hall edges.



Statistical theory of relaxation of high-energy electrons in quantum Hall edge states

We investigate theoretically the energy exchange between the electrons of two copropagating, out-of-equilibrium edge states with opposite spin polarization in the integer quantum Hall regime. A

Energy relaxation in the integer quantum Hall regime.

The observed short energy relaxation length challenges the usual description of quantum Hall excitations as quasiparticles localized in one edge channel and suggests the contribution of extra degrees of freedom.

Energy relaxation at quantum Hall edge

We address the recent experiments where an electron distribution function at the quantum Hall edge has been measured with high precision. It has been reported that the energy of electrons injected

Robust quantum coherence above the Fermi sea

In this paper we present an experiment where we measured the quantum coherence of a quasiparticle injected at a well-defined energy above the Fermi sea into the edge states of the integer quantum

Electron quantum optics in ballistic chiral conductors

The edge channels of the quantum Hall effect provide one dimensional chiral and ballistic wires along which electrons can be guided in an optics‐like setup. Electronic propagation can then be

Quantum coherence engineering in the integer quantum Hall regime.

The strengthening of the phase coherence at finite temperature is shown to arise from a reduction of the coupling between copropagating edge states, which opens the way for a strong improvement of thephase coherence of quantum Hall systems.

Spectroscopic study on hot-electron transport in a quantum Hall edge channel

Hot electron transport in a quantum Hall edge channel of an AlGaAs/GaAs heterostructure is studied by investigating the energy distribution function in the channel. Ballistic hot-electron transport,

Tuning energy relaxation along quantum Hall channels.

This work demonstrates experimentally the efficient tuning of the energy relaxation that limits quantum coherence and permits the return toward equilibrium, and elucidates the inelastic mechanisms at work at ν(L)=2, informing us, in particular, that those within the outer edge channel are negligible.

Hong-Ou-Mandel experiment for temporal investigation of single-electron fractionalization

Two-particle interferences in the electronic analogue of the Hong-Ou-Mandel experiment in a quantum Hall conductor at filling factor 2 reveal the fractionalization process in the time domain and establish its relevance for the destruction of the quasiparticle, which degrades into the collective modes.
