Tom's talk detailed his efforts to model a 1D quantum wire and perform conductance calculations. During the talk he walked the audience through the steps of his approach, detailing each part of the simulation. His techniques involved a tight binding approach, using a recursive algorithm to iterate over small unit cells.

Tom is a final year student based in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester, and is supervised by Prof. Vladimir Fal'ko.
