Workshop on “Quantum transport in graphene”

(In memory of late Prof. Malek Zareyan, 1971-2014)

24th April 2014(4 Ordibehesht 1393)

School of Physics, IPM

In honor of Prof. Malek Zareyan, the school of physics of the IPM, organizes a memorial on the 24 th of April 2014. Prof. Malek Zareyan, who was a distinguished theoretical condensed matter physicist best known for his contributions to the quantum transport, was born in 1971 and recently passed away on February 24, 2014 at the age 44. He graduated from the Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences (IASBS) in Zanjan in 2000 and became an assistant professor of theoretical Physics at IASBS in 2001. He was a guest scientist at the Max-Planck Institute for Physics of Complex Systems (2003), a distinguished researcher in the project “Spin and Charge Flow in Nanostructures” at the Center for Advanced Studies in Norway (2006) and an associate member of ICTP (2008-2013). He became a full professor of theoretical physics at IASBS in 2013. He published more than 40 papers in highly prestigious international journals in the fields of superconductivity, superconducting proximity effect and quantum transport in meso-scale and Nano-scale systems including graphene, spintronics and quantum shot noise.

A one day workshop on “Quantum transport in graphene” is planned by and held at IPM, Tehran. This workshop is held in the memory of late Prof. Malek Zareyan and intended to provide advanced research information about the on-going activities in graphene physics. Graphene, the leading example of a two-dimensional crystalline material, is exceptionally conductive of electricity and heat even at one atom thickness which has engendered a great deal of interest. Interestingly, the horizon of the physics of graphene is becoming wider thanks to advances in experimental techniques. Therefore, we are now expanding our interests to not only transport but also optical and other properties for layered systems that include multilayers as well as monolayer graphene. In graphene, the physics of relativistic electrons is now experimentally accessible in solid-state devices, whose behavior differs drastically from that of similar devices fabricated with common semiconductors. Particularly, graphene has attracted an intense theoretical and experimental attention to study the effects of the relativistic-like dynamics of electrons on the different quantum transport phenomena, which are already known in ordinary conducting systems.
