  1. Topological States of Matter: Theory and Applications

Abstract

We review and develop recent results regarding Leviton excitations generated in topological states of matter – such as integer and fractional quantum Hall edge channels – and carrying a charge multiple of the electronic one. The peculiar features associated with these clean and robust emerging excitations can be detected through current correlation measurements. In particular, relevant information can be extracted from the noise signal in generalized Hong-Ou-Mandel experiments, where Levitons with different charges collide against each other at a quantum point contact. We describe this quantity both in the framework of the photo-assisted noise formalism and in terms of a very interesting and transparent picture based on wave-packet overlap.
