New paper about fractal structure in hopping transport

August 29, 2016

In a recent paper, Tianran Chen and I identified an interesting fractal structure of hopping conduction pathways in compensated semiconductors.  The finding implies that hopping conductivity is unusually large and robust in these systems, and can appear two-dimensional even in a 3D system.

The paper was selected as an Editor's Suggestion in PRB, and is the subject of a news article in Inside Science: https://www.insidescience.org/news/electrons-semiconductors-dont-follow-...
