"Opportunities for new Physics in O-D/1-D Hybrids"
ABSTRACT:
Over the last decade, nanocrystals, fullerenes and nanotubes have provided many new opportunities for studies of low-dimensional physical phenomena once accessible only in lithographic heterostructures. These phenomena include spectacular optical properties, ballistic transport, Coulomb blockade, Kondo resonance, and numerous other effects related to electron, exciton, and phonon confinement. This talk will begin by reviewing observations of these phenomena in the nanomaterials; I will then discuss proposals for hybrid 0-D/1-D systems which illustrate what novel physics lies ahead in this promising field.
