We do basic research on physical properties of superconducting and magnetic layer systems (single crystals, thin film heterostructures).
Our main research activities are in the area of the investigation of electric transport properties at low temperaturer, with focus on tunneling and Josephson effects, quantum interferometry and nonlinearer dynamics.
The technoloy which we use for our research includes modern techniques in
thin film deposition, patterning and characterization (UHV cluster deposition system, electron- and photolithography, characterization via SEM, XRD, EBSD, AFM/STM)
electric transport measurement (in magnetic fields up to 12 T, in microwave fields up to 40 GHz, at temperatures from 10 mK to 300 K)
imaging of electric transport properties at low temperatures via low-temperature scanning electron microscopy (LTSEM) and low-temperature scanning laser microscopy (LTSLM)
