Prof. Ben Shalom Moshe

Prof. Moshe Ben Shalom is building a layered-2D-materials lab. The lab’s research exploits thin crystalline structures to study emerging quantum transport phenomena in low-dimensional electronic systems, in particular: 2D superconductivity, planar Josephson junctions, quantum Hall effect, electronic mini-bands in Moiré super-lattices, and hydrodynamic-like flow of electrons.

Research achievements include: measuring the role of spin-orbit interactions on superconductivity in 2D oxide interfaces; demonstrating the first “long” and yet ballistic Josephson current and describing the mesoscopic mechanism of such systems under high magnetic fields; tracing frequent electron-electron collisions and measuring the viscosity of electrons in graphene.

Future directions include: Using strain to induce extreme synthetic gauge fields and new electronic orders, as well as constructing artificial super-lattice-potentials to realize Bloch-oscillations in graphene.
