Quantum transport in nanoscale junctions

 
Snapshots of results within projects on nanoscale junctions. To the left we calculated the coupling between an oscillator and superconducting/nano wire junction. In the center we se how molecular magnets can be probed by transport. To right we explore exotic superconductivity in a magnetic field.
 
Nano-scale devices may very well be the basic components of future electronics. We have projects at AQP on non-equilibrium transport in such devices. Of particular interest is understanding transport of charge, spin or energy through few-channel contacts made of e.g. single molecules, carbon nanotubes, or few-layer graphene. We are also working on properties of unconventional superconductors. Superconductors are materials that conduct without resistance or energy loss below a transition temperature Tc. New materials show high Tc:s but are usually very complex with competing superconducting and magnetic order. We make theoretical models and calculations to probe this complex order of matter.
