October 5, 2015 Prof. Manfra named APS Fellow for advancing MBE growth of AlGaAs/GaAs and AlGaN/GaN heterostructures that enable fundamental understanding of 2D electron correlation effects and realization of novel devices.
The fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) occurs in a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) subjected to a perpendicular magnetic field at low temperature. It is now understood to arise from strong electron-electron interactions. In transport experiments the FHQE is characterized by Hall resistance quantized to rational fractional values of h/e2 and vanishingly small longitudinal resistance. Quasi-particle excitations in the FQHE are called anyons.
Nanostructures such quantum dots fabricated on modulation-doped AlGaAs/GaAs heterostructures are widely used in spin-based approaches to quantum computing. Charge noise in these devices, however, limits gate fidelity. A quiet electrostatic environment is therefore essential for further progress.
