Exploring quantum phenomena of various fermionic quantum models through their thermodynamic properties


Thermodynamic properties are usually associated with the macroscopic or bulk properties of a system. In the nanoscale of condensed fermionic systems, their thermodynamics properties such as the thermoelectric coefficient, thermal conductivity or heat capacity, among others, can be used to probe quantum phenomena. Different theoretical models for fermions that have a distinct feature, such as (i) disorder, (ii) two-particle interaction, or (iii) spin-orbit coupling, are explored at low temperature to show how a temperature gradient affects their thermodynamics properties. In turn, these offer insight into the quantum nature of systems described by these fermionic models.
