Electronic and Optoelectronic Physics in the van der Waals Heterojunctions
Recent advances of van der Waals (vdW) materials and their heterostructures provide a new opportunity to realize atomically sharp interfaces in the ultimate quantum limit. Research by Kim’s group demonstrates the enhanced electronic and optoelectronic performances in the vdW heterostructures. It suggests that these interfaces, which are only a few atoms thick, may provide a fundamental platform to realize novel physical phenomena, such as hydrodynamic charge flows, cross-Andreev reflection across the quantum Hall edges states, and interlayer exciton formation and manipulations.
