Sandia Quantum Transport Article Was the 12th Most Downloaded Paper from AIP’s Applied Physics Letters in February

Research on topological insulators (TIs) has drawn intensive interests. The type-II InAs/GaSb heterostructure, due to its unusual alignment of the conduction and valence band edges of InAs and GaSb, is predicted to be a two-dimensional (2D) TI.

Historically, type-II InAs/GaSb heterostructures have been extensively studied for infrared applications. With the new prediction as a 2D TI, […]
