Research Experience
Condensed Matter
AugNov, 2012 Novel London moments in rapidly rotating topological insulators
I devised a universal and quantum mechanical formalism of noninertial effects in rotating crystals, consistent with London moment in superconductors and Barnett's effects.
I showed that rotationinduced pseudogauge field is affiliated to charge U(1) gauge rather than being an independent "artificial gauge field."
In contrast to trivial crystals, I predicted theoretically two novel types of moments in rotating topological insulators (TI) in the presence of a auxiliary magnetic field.
When the auxiliary field is applied parallel or radially perpendicular to the rotation axis, one will observe a quadratic magnetic moment and an electric moment respectively.
I suggested a "solenoid" structure and lockin measurement to improve detectability and precision.
I also pointed out that the experiments will shed light on interactions inside a TI and clarify some controversies over rotating crystals.
Cold Atoms
Aug, 2012 Effects of RashbaDresselhaus competition in 2D twocomponent spinor BEC
I combined the two spinorbit coupling strengths into a single complex parameter with argument α characterizing the mixing.
In the free particle model, I demonstrated explicitly how the ground state degeneracy evolves as a function of α;
Effects of Zeeman term and parity breaking term on dispersion relation were also studied.
