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.
Magnetic field independent sub-gap states in hybrid Rashba nanowires Most reports on the highly visible topic of Majorana Fermions in solid state systems are based on the observation of magnetic field independent transport resonances at zero bias, so-called zero-bias peaks.
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
Our paper entitled “Mobility Enhancement in Graphene by in situ Reduction of Random Strain Fluctuations” appeared in Phys. Rev. Lett. Bumps on a road slow down our pace, so do corrugations in graphene to travelling electrons. By flattening the corrugations
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
In this new publication, entitled: Highly symmetric and tunable tunnel couplings in InAs/InP nanowire heterostructure quantum dots Frederick and co-worker show that built-in quantum dots (QD) are very versatile for high resolution tunneling spectroscopy, since the tunnel coupling strength G1 and G2 can be
