Main research field is:
Strongly Correlated LowDimensional Electron Systems
The current research area includes quantum transport phenomena in
lowdimensional electron systems with extremely strong internal interactions.
The central objects of interest are the Coulomb liquid, of which the average
Coulomb interaction energy per electron is much higher than the mean kinetic
energy, and the Wigner solid. The important research themes are the
unconventional Hall effect in twodimensional (2D) electron liquids, quantum
cyclotron resonance and dynamics of highly correlated electrons strongly coupled
with medium excitations. The most popular experimental realizations of such
systems, which possess remarkable properties, are the 2D Coulomb liquid and
Wigner solid formed on the free surface of liquid helium and other cryogenic
interfaces. An instructive result of these studies is that the relationship and
similarity between a strongly correlated electron liquid and an ideal gas can be
established not for the excitation spectrums, but for a more global property,
the dynamical structure factor, which plays an important role in the quantum
transport theory of highly correlated electrons. In 2012, this result was successfully applied for description of Coulombic effects on microwaveinduced magnetoconductivity oscillations of surface electrons on liquid helium.
