Instructor:  Konstantinos Moulopoulos

Content: The quantum physics of electrons around and inside an applied Magnetic Field (magnetic Aharonov-Bohm Effect, Integer and Fractional Quantum Hall Effect (QHE), Composite Fermions) – Two-dimensional electron-hole systems and their hidden symmetries (conservation of pseudomomentum in a single-particle but also in a many-body framework) – Wigner crystal and competitive (liquid and solid) phases. Graphene and its unconventional QHE – Topological Insulators and how they are protected by quantum discrete symmetries – Topological (Dirac and Weyl) Semimetals – Topological Superconductors and Majorana Fermions.

Assesment: Based on 3-4 projects.
