< >

Yilikal Ayino is a graduate student doing condensed matter experiments, working in Vlad Pribiag’s laboratory. Pribiag’s lab is interested in two areas of research, quantum spin transport and Majorana physics in condensed matter systems. The focus is on low dimensional systems – two dimensional electron gases, nanowires, and quantum dots. The group is especially interested in materials that have high spin-orbit coupling, such as Indium antimonide or indium arsenide.
