David successfully defendes his Phd on the 15th of October, Congratulations! His commitee consited of Dr. Sophie Guéron (Univ. Paris Sud, Orsay) and Prof. Dr. Stijit Goswami (TU-Delft). Thanks a lot to them for their careful reading of the manuscript!
There are various ways to measure the magnetic field, for example, by the force exerted on a ferromagnetic needle, by the voltage measured at the two ends of a wire wound into a coil or through the Hall effect that
we are just back from a great (but quite tough … at least for the boss) hike that started in a village called Curaglia closed to Disentis. We walked up to the Medelserhütte , which is a small but very nice
From June 22nd till the 26th we had the installation of our new low temperature scanning confocal Raman microscope from attocube. It is a marriage of attocube attoDRY 2100 with the attoCFM/Raman and a WITEC spectrometer setup. We had the
On Tuesday 30th of June, Frederick Thomas has successfully defended his thesis. Congratulations! The thesis commitee consisted of Prof. Ilaria Zardo (chair), Prof. Dominik Zumbühl (co-supervisor), Prof. Szabolcs Csonka (BME, Budapest), Prof. Stefano Roddaro (NEST Pisa) and the local Christian.
One-dimensional edge transport in few-layer WTe2 In 2016 the Nobel Prize in Physics was given to three theorists who introduced a new state of matter, topological matter. A subclass is defined by topological insulators (TIs), which are crystals that are
Physicists of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) and the University of Basel discovered a surprising result on the extension of Yu-Shiba-Rusinov states. Their joint studies appeared in Nature Communications. Recently several promising novel qubit concepts have been
Last week Thursday and Friday we were exploring “one of the most famous ski resorts in Switzerland: We had a good start with a special bus only for us! Martin, well done! The plan was
Project TOPSQUAD (Topologically Protected and Scalable Quantum Bits) started with a kick-off meeting at the University of Twente Tursday and Friday 13th and 14th of Febr. 2020. The project aims to engineer qubits into the standard IC material Silicon and
