Reasearch Experience

 
 
 
 
 

Ab-initio study of rare-earth oxide superconductors with nontrivial topology

Supervised by Prof. Wei Li

May 2021 – Aug 2021 Artificial Interface Lab, Fudan University
  • Developed python codes to study the nontrivial topology of rare-earth oxide superconductor LaO and found non-zero $Z_2$ invariant together with topologically protected surface states.
  • Analyzed the energy splitting of La orbitals in oxygen octahedron crystal fields with group theory and identified the origin of band inversion as the 5d to 4f orbital transition.
 
 
 
 
 

Theoretical study of Majorana zero modes in topological superconductors

Supervised by Prof. Wei Li

May 2019 – Apr 2020 Artificial Interface Lab, Fudan University
  • Constructed a lattice model of metal-superconductor junctions and developed python codes to simulate Andreev reflection spectrum.
  • Studied the finite-size effects of the zero-bias conductance peak in topological superconductors.
