To clarify these basic problems, the QHE was studied in Si/SiGe heterostructures by several groups, who reported indications of FQHE states measured on a variety of samples from different laboratories.46–50 The most concise experiments so far were performed in the group of D. C. Tsui, who employed magnetic fields B of up to 45 T and temperatures down to 30 mK.51 The investigated sample had a mobility of 250,000 cm2 V−1 s−1 and an nMIT < 5 × 1010 cm− 2. The first approach, successfully applied by Schmeller et al. Perspective is also given for recent advances in the quantum Hall effect in oxides, narrow-gap semiconductors and graphene, as well as a spinoff in physics to anomalous Hall effect and spin Hall effect. Lines with slopes corresponding to s = 7 and s = 33 spin flips are shown in Fig. Under these conditions a hysteretic magnetoresistance peak was observed, which moves from the low field to the high field edge of the QHE minimum as the tilting angle of the magnetic field passes through the coincidence angle.

Interpreting recent experimental results of light interactions with matter shows that the classical Maxwell theory of light has intrinsic quantum spin Hall effect properties even in free space. Klaus von KIitzing was awarded the 1985 Nobel prize in physics for this discovery. The FQHE is a manifestation of correlation effects among the charge carriers interacting in the two-dimensional system, which lead to the formation of new quantum states. The solid line is the expected variation of the gap with g-factor calculated for a Skyrmion-type excitation (Sondhi et al., 1993), while the short dashed line indicates the “bare” Zeeman dependence s|g|μBB + EB with s = 1 as predicted by the spin wave dispersion model. D.K. Nowadays this effect is denoted as integer quantum Hall effect (IQHE) since, for 2DESs of higher quality and at lower temperature, plateau values in the Hall resistance have been found with by |RH|=h/(fe2), where f is a fractional number, Tsui et al. These results demonstrate that the basic concept of the composite fermion (CF) model52 remains valid, despite the twofold valley degeneracy. The quantum spin Hall state of matter is the cousin of the integer quantum Hall state, and that does not require the application of a large magnetic field. Quantum Hall effects in graphene55,56 have been studied intensively. These orbits are quantized with a degeneracy that depends on the magnetic field intensity, and are termed Landau levels. Complex effects in condensed-matter systems can often find analogs in cleaner optical systems. There is no plateau at zero energy because it is the center of a Landau level, where states are extended and σxx≠0 (it is local maximum). In bilayer graphene where the Hall conductivity is (for n ≥ 1): a full integer shift of conductivity is obtained for n = 1. Filling factors are labeled υ; the level broadening is denoted by Γ. Upper frame: density dependence of the valley splitting at υ = 3. Table 6.6 provides a comparison summarizing the important IQHE physical effects in semiconductors and graphene. 6.11. In order to contribute to the current, this exciton must be dissociated. 13. At each pressure the carrier concentration was carefully adjusted by illuminating the sample with pulses of light so that v = 1 occurred at the same magnetic field value of 11.6 T. For a 6.8-nm quantum well, the g-factor calculated using a five-band k.p model as described in Section II is zero for an applied pressure of 4.8 kbars. In particular, at filling factor v = 1, while the ground state is a ferromagnetic single-electron state, the excitation spectrum has been predicted (Bychkov et al., 1981; Kallin and Halperin, 1984; 1985) to consist of a many-body spin wave dispersion. The quantum Hall effect (QHE) and its relation to fundamental physical constants was discovered in 1980 by Klaus von Klitzing for which he received a Nobel prize in 1985. Figure 15.4 shows an overview of longitudinal and lateral resistivities, ρxx and ρxy, respectively, in the range 0 < B < 40 T at 30 mK. Even though the arrow of time matters in everyday life, one can imagine what time-reversal symmetry means by looking at billiard balls moving on a pool table. The peaks are the centers of Landau levels. Therefore, the origin of the different n-dependencies could simply represent the different exchange-correlation energies of the N = 0 and N = 1 landau levels. The Quantum Hall Effect: A … Band, Yshai Avishai, in Quantum Mechanics with Applications to Nanotechnology and Information Science, 2013. Moreover, the valley splitting shows a pronounced anomaly inside the coincidence regime, where it becomes enhanced rather than suppressed, as would have been expected in a single particle picture (Fig. 17. The employment of graphene in the QHE metrology is particularly prescient, with SI units for mass and current to in future also be defined by h and e (Mills et al., 2011). But let's start from the classical Hall effect, the famous phenomenon by which a current flows perpendicular to an applied voltage, or vice versa a voltage develops perpendicular to a flowing current. Bearing the above in mind, the IQHE in graphene can be understood with some modifications due to its different Hamiltonian. (1995), has the disadvantage that at low magnetic fields it is not evident that Landau level mixing can be neglected (Kralik et al., 1995). Discovered decades ago, the quantum Hall effect remains one of the most studied phenomena in condensed matter physics and is relevant for research areas such as topological phases, strong electron correlations and quantum computing 1-5 . careful mapping of the energy gaps of the observed FQHE states revealed quite surprisingly that the CF states assume their own valley degeneracy, which appears to open a gap proportional to the effective magnetic field B* of the respective CF state, rather than being proportional to the absolute B field.53 For the CF states the valley degeneracy therefore plays a different role than the spin degeneracy, the opening gap of which is proportional to B, and thus does not play a role at the high magnetic fields at which FQHE states are typically observed. independent of the orientation of B with respect to the 2DEG. The energy levels are labeled with the Landau level index N, the spin orientation (↓, ↑) and the valley index (+, −). Fig 13.41. Originally the quantum Hall effect (QHE) was a term coined to describe the unexpected observation of a fundamental electrical resistance, with a value independent of … Yehuda B. At this magnetic field, the splitting ∆v between the ∆2 valleys was estimated to be about 26 μeV (corresponding to a thermal energy of 0.3 K). However, the electrons at the interface must move along the edge of the material where they only complete partial trajectories before reaching a boundary of the material. The spin wave dispersion model successfully accounts for the many-body enhancement of the spin gap at v = 1 deduced from thermally activated transport, although the absolute value of the enhancement is somewhat overestimated. Seng Ghee Tan, Mansoor B.A. While for |η| ≥ 0.004 the data are consistent with s = 7, the slope around g = 0 implies a Skyrmion size of s = 33 spins. This implies that at least for some phases of operation of the device, the carriers are confined in a potential such that the motion is only permitted in a restricted direction thus, quantizing the motion in this directi… Paul Bazylewski, Giovanni Fanchini, in Comprehensive Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (Second Edition), 2019. Without knowing when the cue ball set the other balls in motion, you may not necessarily know whether you were seeing the events run forward or in reverse. A consistent interpretation is based on electron–electron interaction, the energy contribution of which is comparable to the landau and spin-splitting energies in the coincidence regime. An inspection of the Hall conductivity at energy just across the zero Landau level shows that it has shifted a half-integer vertically, resulting in the first conductivity step in either direction being half the size of subsequent steps. Therefore, on each edge, the Fermi energy between two Landau levels εn<εF<εn+1 crosses 2n + 1 edge states, hence, σxy=(2n+1)e2∕h per spin.

Above 300 mK the resistance peak vanishes rapidly, which is indicative of the collapse of the Ising ferromagnetic domain structure. The maturity of graphene as a QHE standard has allowed for the fine comparison of the quantisation behaviour with that of GaAs heterostructures. Empty symbols stand for Δ3(N = 0, ↑), filled symbols for Δ3(N = 1, ↓). Scanning-force-microscopy allows to measure the position-dependence of the Hall potential and self-consistent magnetotrans port calculations under due consideration of electronic screening allow to understand these measurements and also why the corresponding current distributions in certain magnetic field intervals lead to the IQHE. When this internal magnetic field is sufficiently large, the situation is similar to that of the externally applied field: the material may be insulating in the bulk and conduct electricity along the edges. Moreover, both slopes are higher than that of the bare valley splitting predicted by a band calculation at B = 0.56 The configurations below and above the υ = 3 coincidence differ in both the landau level indices and the spin orientation. With Ф, adjusted to the coincidence angle Фc, the longitudinal resistivity ρxx was measured as a function of φ. It is generally accepted that the von Klitzing constant RK agrees with h/e2, and is therefore directly related to the Sommerfeld fine-structure constant α=(µ0c/2)(e2/h)=(µ0c/2)(RK)−1, which is a measure for the strength of the interaction between electromagnetic fields and elementary particles. (b) Longitudinal resistivity ρxx and Hall conductivity σxy for bulk graphene as function of Fermi energy.

The most important implication of the IQHE is its application in metrology where the effect is used to represent a resistance standard. Fig. “Colloquium: Topological insulators.” M. Z. Hasan and C. L. Kane. The FQHE is a manifestation of correlation effects among the charge carriers interacting in the two-dimensional system, which lead to the formation of new quantum states. Note that we use here the common nomenclature of the ↓ spin state being anti-parallel to B, and therefore defining the energetically lower Zeeman state in the Si/SiGe material system with its positive g*; in Refs 55 and 56, spin labeling was reversed. For υ < 1/3 the sample enters an insulating state. As described earlier, Berry’s phase arises as a result of the rotation of the pseudospin in an adiabatic manner. Meanwhile, the availability of high-mobility Si/SiGe heterostructures has strongly reduced the performance gap to the III–V semiconductors. 13.41(b). Let us follow the Laughlin argument in Sec. Summary of physical quantities relevant to the understanding of IQHE in semiconductors, monolayer and bilayer graphene. Due to a small standard uncertainty in reproducing the value of the quantized Hall resistance (few parts of 10−9, Delahaye, 2003, and nowadays even better), its value was fixed in 1990, for the purpose of resistance calibration, to 25 812.807 Ω and is nowadays denoted as conventional von Klitzing constant RK−90.
