Charge Density Waves and Electronic Nematicity in the Three Band Model of Cuprate Superconductors
Bulut, Sinan (20140909)Cuprate superconductors exhibit very high critical temperatures, $T_c$, compared to those in the conventional superconductors. The doping at which $T_c$ is maximized is called optimal doping. Below this level, in the ... 
Dynamics of BoseEinstein Condensates in Josephson Junctions
Semple, Jaclyn (20110111)We numerically solve the GrossPitaevskii equation and the Bogoliubov de Gennes equations for a double well potential in order to model the dynamics of a BoseEinstein condensate in a Josephson junction. First, the two ... 
The Effect of Disorder on Strongly Correlated Electrons
Farhoodfar, Avid (20110831)This thesis is devoted to a study of the effect of disorder on strongly correlated electrons. For noninteracting electrons, Anderson localization occurs if the amount of disorder is sufficient. For disorderfree systems, ...
