In this News and Views article for Nature, we discuss an outstanding result reported by Nakajima et al. on a chiral superconductor and illustrate the potential of this material for spintronic and superconducting spintronics applications!
Prof. Di Bernardo gets awarded the prestigious Kurti Science Prize for Europe for low-temperature Physics. The prize is awarded by a committee of senior European academics and sponsored by Oxford Instruments.
Our group has successfully led another international collaboration and published a new manuscript showing that chiral molecules (ChMs) can radically change the macroscopic Meissner state of a conventional (Nb) superconductor, once adsorbed onto its surface. The results published in Physical Review Materials pave the way for the realisation of superconducting devices, where the magnetic flux coupled through a S is changed locally via adsorbed ChMs.
Our research group has led an international collaboration and have addressed a long-standing question about the possible existence of magnetism in the unconventional superconductor Sr2RuO4. The results are presented in an article published in the journal Nature Communications. Discovery importance highlighted by several magazines and scientific media!
