Presentation
We are a small team of 15-20 researchers (7 permanent researchers and as many students and postdocs) working on various aspects of quantum nanoelectronics, superconductivity (both mesoscopic and bulk), magnetism and spintronics with a strong overlap with the experimental teams of PHELIQS, especially IMAPEC (correlated materials) and LATEQS (nanoelectronics).




Research topics

• Topological and non-conventional superconductivity, either bulk or artificially emulated in proximity of conventional materials (such as ordinary magnets or superconductors). Examples in this direction are the works on Majorana fermions (a putative platform for topologically protected quantum computations) or superconducting-ferromagnet-superconducting junctions (where one induces effective triplet superconductivity.

• Frustrated magnetism in bulk systems as well as spintronics devices (such as nanopillars), quantum nanoelectronics, including the development of new techniques capable of tackling complex quantum physical mechanisms (such as high-frequency effects or electronic correlations).

• Open source numerical techniques for quantum problems, see the KWANT project.
