Abstract:

In this program, we have identified theoretically the most promising candidate for current driven plasma instabilities CDPI in semiconductor based systems the modulated lower dimensional systems. We also investigated the effects of a grating coupler and a strong magnetic field on CDPI in uniform two- dimensional electron gases. Significant progress was made in pursuing the goal of experimental verification of this phenomenon in superconductor based systems.
