    Double parton scattering can be important in hadron-hadron collisions at very high energies. I review the basics of this dynamical mechanism and point out what it may reveal about hadron structure. I report on recent progress to formulate a systematic theory for it, using the same principles as the well-known factorisation theorems for single parton scattering.

    The isolation of a growing number of two-dimensional (2D) materials has inspired worldwide efforts to integrate distinct 2D materials into van der Waals (vdW) heterostructures. While a tremendous amount of research activity has occurred in assembling disparate 2D materials into "all-2D" van der Waals heterostructures,1, 2 this concept is not limited to 2D materials alone. Given that any passivated, dangling bond-free surface will interact with another via vdW forces, the vdW heterostructure concept can be extended to include the integration of 2D materials with non-2D materials that adhere primarily through noncovalent interactions.3 In the first part of this talk I will present our work on emerging mixed-dimensional (2D + nD, where n is 0, 1 or 3) heterostructure devices performed at Northwestern University. I will present two distinct examples of gate-tunable p-n heterojunctions.4-6 I will show that when a single layer n-type molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) (2D) is combined with p-type semiconducting single walled carbon nanotubes (1D), the resulting p-n junction is gate-tunable and shows a tunable diode behavior with rectification as a function of gate voltage and a unique anti-ambipolar transfer behavior.4 The same concept when extended to p-type organic small molecule semiconductor (pentacene) (0D) and n-type 2D MoS2 leads to a tunable p-n junction with a photovoltaic effect and an asymmetric anti-ambipolar transfer response.6 I will present the underlying charge transport and photocurrent responses in both the above systems using a variety of scanning probe microscopy techniques as well as computational methods. Finally, I will show that the anti-ambipolar field effect observed in the above systems can be generalized to other semiconducting heterojunction systems and extended over large areas with practical applications in wireless communication circuits.5 The second part of talk will discuss my more recent work performed at Caltech on photovo

    11 am, CFN, Bldg. 735, Conference Room A, 1st Floor

    Nearly a hundred years after its discovery, superconductivity remains one of the most intriguing phases of matter. In 1957 Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer (BCS) presented their theory of superconductivity describing this state in terms of pairs of electrons arranged in a spatially isotropic wave function with no net momentum and a spin singlet configuration. Immediately thereafter, a search began to find materials with unconventional superconductivity where pairing deviates from conventional BCS theory. One particular class of unconventional superconductors involves pairs arranged in triplet rather than singlet configurations. Such superconductors may enable dissipationless transport of spin and may also give rise to elementary excitations that do not obey the conventional Fermi or Bose statistics but rather have non-Abelian statistics where the exchange of two particles transforms the state of the system into a new quantum mechanical state. In this talk I will describe some of our recent work that explores the proximity effect between a conventional superconductor and a semiconductor with strong spin-orbit interaction. Using supercurrent interference, we show that we can tune the induced superconductivity continuously from conventional to unconventional that is from singlet to triplet. Our results open up new possibilities for exploring unconventional superconductivity as well as provide an exciting new pathway for exploring non-Abelian excitation.

    Center for Functional Nanomaterials Seminar

    "Role of passive and dynamic defects in perovskite semiconductors"

    Presented by Dr. Aditya Sadhanala, University of California, Berkeley and Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge

    1:30 pm, CFN, Bldg. 735, Conference Room B, 2nd Floor

    My talk would be based on one of the most sensitive absorption measurement techniques called – Photothermal Deflection Spectroscopy (PDS). PDS possesses a capability of measuring absorption with 4-5 orders of magnitude dynamic range of sensitivity as compared to 1-2 orders of magnitude demonstrated by traditional absorption spectrometers. I will talk about how PDS works and how is it useful in undertaking some in-depth analysis of material quality, defects, new kind of states known as charge transfer states and doping, etc. I will explain the utility of this tool in various fields of research including solar cells, LEDs and FETs. I will also try to give a brief account on my current research on perovskite semiconductors. I will also introduce you to the exciting world of perovskite semiconductors and talk about the interesting role of defects in perovskites – both passive/static and dynamic defects.
