Thrust 1: Fundamental Investigation of New Quantum Materials

Thrust 1 Leader: Dr. Doyle Temple
National High Magnetic Field Laboratory

Brief description of objectives and measurements

Cobalt monosilicide (CoSi) crystalizes in a chiral structure in the P213 space group. Recently, Shubnikov-de Haas (SdH) oscillations are measured AT NHMFL using the contactless-conductivity method. A coil comprising 10 turns of  46-gauge high-conductivity copper wire is wound about the single-crystal sample. The coil forms part of a proximity detector oscillator circuit.

Plasmonic lasers operating in weak and strong coupling regimes

In this effort, we will study a variety of plasmonic and cavity based nanoscopic lasers and strongly coupled spontaneous emission sources, looking for signatures of coherence, Bose-Einstein condensation and polaritonic lasing.

Exploring Effects of Spin Angular Momentum Transfer from Light to Matter

(a) Electric fields and direction of rotation in SPP propagating at the metal-dielectric interface(b) Torque t and effective forces associated with SAM absorption in a non-magnetic material; (c) Possible scenario when SAM absorption torque results in electron spin polarization instead of effective spin forces.
