New research article

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.

New research article

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!

Two postdocs join the group!

Dr Sohaila Mohammed Zaghloul and Dr Sara Khorshidian join the group as part of the EU FET-Open project SuperGate.

Awarded EU FET-Open grant
