The scientific research of Professor Palevski is engaged with quantum electronic transport in condensed matter systems at low temperatures. The research topics are quite diverse and span over many areas of modern solid state physics: superconductivity, ferromagnetism, Quantum Hall effect, and mesoscopic physics, topological materials. Due to the diversity of the subjects, also the materials which are investigated cover broad range of solids, i.e. normal metals, ferromagnets, semiconductors, topological insulators and superconductors. The common denominator among the devices made of these material systems is the low dimensionality. Vast majority of the experimentally studied electronic systems are either 2D quantum wells or 1D quantum wires. Small dimensions of the devices fabricated in the lab are achieved using the state of the art nanofabrication techniques, including photolithography, electron beam lithography, focused ion beam microscopy and other advanced techniques.
