Non-linear anomalous thermal transport in 2D materials with broken symmetry
In atomistic crystals with a broken inversion symmetry, a thermal gradient is supposed to generate a non-equilibrium spin-population at the edges of the material. So far, similar non-linear effects with an anomalous spin-population have been detected mainly by electronic means. This project explores the important impact of the thermal (phonon) bath on the spin-dynamics in corresponding crystals. Interest or good knowledge in solid state physics, semiconductor physics, Python programming, optoelectronics or nanofabrication is a plus, but certainly not a must.
