Physica E: Low-dimensional systems and nanostructures contains papers and invited review articles on the fundamental and applied aspects of physics in low-dimensional electron systems, in semiconductor heterostructures, oxide interfaces, quantum wells and superlattices, quantum wires and dots, novel quantum states of matter such as topological insulators, and Weyl semimetals.
Both theoretical and experimental contributions are invited. Topics suitable for publication in this journal include spin related phenomena, optical and transport properties, many-body effects, integer and fractional quantum Hall effects, quantum spin Hall effect, single electron effects and devices, Majorana fermions, and other novel phenomena.
