Discovering the secrets of a one atomic layer thick superconductor

The journal Nature Communications just published the results of a Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) experiment (link), led by the MIT professor Riccardo Comin, and conducted in collaboration with the Politecnico group of Prof. Ghiringhelli and with the QMand researcher Riccardo Arpaia. The experiment aimed at discovering the origin of superconductivity in iron selenide (FeSe),Continue reading “Discovering the secrets of a one atomic layer thick superconductor”

Shedding light on the strange metal regime of cuprate superconductors

In the work just published in Communications Physics (link) we have presented the result of our collaboration with Politecnico di Milano, Brandenburg University of Technology and La Sapienza University in Rome. Here we show a theoretical proposal, which investigates the consequences of the charge density fluctuations – we have discovered two years ago by ResonantContinue reading “Shedding light on the strange metal regime of cuprate superconductors”

Welcome back Kiryl Niherysh

Kiryl, one of our former guests, will join our group at Chalmers from the 5th of January until next September. Kiryl is PhD student at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, University of Latvia, working in the field of micro- and nano electronics. During his stay with us at Chalmers, he will be engaged in theContinue reading “Welcome back Kiryl Niherysh”

Size matters for transport in topological insulator nanoribbons

Read our recent work on topological insulator Bi2Se3 nanoribbons. We have grown Bi2Se3 nanoribbons by catalyst-free Physical Vapor Deposition, and employed them to fabricate  high quality Josephson junctions. In these devices we have observed a pronounced size effect in the transport properties: a strong reduction of the Josephson critical current density Jc occurs by reducing the width of theContinue reading “Size matters for transport in topological insulator nanoribbons”

New VR grants

Thilo Bauch (on the left) and Riccardo Arpaia (on the right) received new Swedish Research Council (VR) project grants for the period 2021-2024. Thilo has been awarded for the project “Quantum Fluctuations and Quantum Entanglement in High Critical Temperature Superconductors”, Riccardo for the project “Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering to study changes in the HTS phaseContinue reading “New VR grants”

Welcome back Matteo Salvato

Matteo, one of the guest researcher collaborating with the QManD group, will join us back in Chalmers from the 3rd of November until the 19th of December. Matteo is a researcher in the field of condensed matter physics at the University of Roma2 “Tor Vergata”. During his stay with us at Chalmers, he will performContinue reading “Welcome back Matteo Salvato”

Two new publications on YBCO nanodevices

We recently published two new articles concerning the properties of YBCO. The first, published on Superconductor Science and Technology, focuses on the work carried out by Eric Andersson Walhberg (link). In the manuscript, Eric shows the advances we achieved in the fabrication of high quality YBCO nanowires with controlled level of doping: from slightly overdopedContinue reading “Two new publications on YBCO nanodevices”

The website is live!

Our new website is ready. The QManD group is happy to welcome you to our dedicated webpage! Thanks to Edoardo Trabaldo and Riccardo Arpaia (our two webmasters) and Ananthu Pullukattuthara Surendran (our photographer). Here you will find info on the activities of the group and our research focus. For more information don’t hesitate to contactContinue reading “The website is live!”
