    We have observed an anomalously large blueshift of the apparent donor–acceptor pair transition peak as the laser intensity increases in compensation-doped coupled quantum wells. The mechanism for the blueshift is the change of the Coulomb interaction energy between the recombined donors...

    We report on terahertz photoconductivity under magnetic field up to 16 T of field effect transistor based on HgTe quantum well (QW) with an inverted band structure. We observe pronounced cyclotron resonance and Shubnikov-de Haas-like oscillations, indicating a high mobility electron gas in the...

  • Topological Phase Transition without Gap Closing. Motohiko Ezawa; Yukio Tanaka; Naoto Nagaosa // Scientific Reports;9/27/2013, p1 

    Topological phase transition is accompanied with a change of topological numbers. According to the bulk-edge correspondence, the gap closing and the breakdown of the adiabaticity are necessary at the phase transition point to make the topological number ill-defined. However, the gap closing is...

    We demonstrate theoretically that electric field can drive a quantum phase transition between band insulator to topological insulator in CdTe/HgCdTe/CdTe quantum wells. The numerical results suggest that the electric field could be used as a switch to turn on or off the topological insulator...

    The light hole g value in AlxGa1-xAs is found to show scaling behavior as a function of quantum well width g⊥≈(well width)-β with β≈0.3. When x is varied to change the Ga concentration there is a critical value of the concentration of 1-xo = 0.88 at which the g value...
