Two master’s project are available on (a) topological insulators and superconductors by design using 2D van der Waals heterostructures, see Master on Engineered Topological Insulators and (b) quantum transport in nanowire-superconductor hybrid devices, see Quantum-Transport in Nanowire Hybrids
3rd Graphene workshop 21-22 June, 2018 This year we had organized the graphene workshop for the 3rd time, which again was really successful, with interesting talks from all over Europe. See you next year! Some impressions: The program: Thursday
Parafermion project started! The QuantEra project entitled “Topologically protected states in double nanowire superconductor hybrids” started with a kick-off meeting on April 4 in Basel. Coordinator: Szabolcs Csonka (Budapest University of Technology and Economics, HU) Jesper Nygard (University of Copenhagen,
Simon Zihlmann successfully defended his PhD thesis “Spin and charge relaxation in graphene” on Friday 13th of April. We welcomed Prof. Dr. Bart J. van Wees (Univ. Groningen) and Porf. Dr. Christoph Stampfer (Univ. Aachen) as external PhD committee members.
Christian Schönenberger has been granted a second ERC Advanced Grant by the European Comission for the project TopSupra: University News ERC Title: Engineered Topological Superconductivity in van der Waals Heterostructures Project summary of TopSupra Topological matter is a new research focus
One of the key properties of graphene for spintronics is its capability to transport spins over long distances unaltered. However, the need to manipulate the spins for information processing and storage is also of fundamental importance. The two dimensional heterostructure
Congratulations! Gulibusitans wins the ski race at the QSIT general meeting in Arosa last week. This is particularly remarkable, since Gulibusitan only learned skiing in Switzerland. This shows what one can achieve in addition to earning a PhD here in
Group sport’s event organized by Frederick Thomas (member of CC Aarau) we visited the Curling Club Aarau Friday evening 12th of January: cc-aarau we’ve enjoyed a nice intro into the art of curling…when the professionals gracefully slide forward with their stone
Congratulations: Gulibusitan Abulizi successfully defended her PhD thesis on Dec. 14th. We welcomed Prof. Carola Meyer (Univ. Osnabrück) and Porf. Kasper Grove-Rasmussen (Univ. of Copenhagen) as external PhD committee members.
