Spin- and angle-resolved photoemission study of topological band inversions within a single orbital manifold (University of St Andrews, 2019-06-24) - ThesisThe isolation of graphene in 2004 and the subsequent characterisation of its many remarkable properties marked the start of an intense and ongoing research effort into other systems hosting so-called Dirac cones within ...
(University of St Andrews, 2019-06-24) - ThesisThe study of collective behaviour in many-body systems often explores fundamentally new ideas absent from the mere constituents of such a system. A paradigmatic model for these studies is the spin-1/2 XXZ chain and its ...
Optical techniques for the investigation of a mechanical role for FRMD6/Willin in the Hippo signalling pathway (University of St Andrews, 2019-06-24) - ThesisThe mammalian hippo signalling pathway controls cell proliferation and apoptosis via transcriptional co-activators YAP and TAZ, and as such is a key regulator of organ and tissue growth. Multiple cellular components ...
