Gleb Finkelstein
Professor of Physics

Gleb Finkelstein is an experimentalist interested in physics of quantum nanostructures, such as Josephson junctions and quantum dots made of carbon nanotubes, graphene, and topological materials. These objects reveal a variety of interesting electronic properties that may form a basis for future quantum devices.

Current Research Interests

My main research topic is the study of the coexistence of superconductivity and the quantum Hall effect. The highlights of this work include: the first observation of a superconducting current induced in the regime of the quantum Hall effect [F. Amet et al., Science 352, 966, 2016] and the first observation of the chiral Andreev edge states – neutral fermionic excitations formed at the interface of a superconductor and a quantum Hall system – predicted 20 years ago [L. Zhao et al., Nature Physics 16, 862, 2020]. The unique combination of the two of the most robust quantum states – quantum Hall effect and superconductivity – is interesting in its own right; it also promises future applications in quantum information science, e.g. for creation of topologically protected states and excitations. In parallel with this direction, we have been exploring multi-terminal Josephson junctions which we developed in ballistic graphene.  [A. Draelos et al., Nano Letters 19, 1039 (2019)].
