The Superconductivity Lab group focuses on the study of superconductors. Our main interest is vortex dynamics and vortex matter phase diagram. The materials we investigate are mostly the High-Tc superconductors as well as conventional superconductors like NbSe2.
Electrical and magnetic properties of the superconductors are studied using several experimental techniques including local magnetization and susceptibility measurements using arrays of microscopic Hall sensors, transport studies, and magneto-optical measurements.
The lab is equipped with various cryogenic and electronic systems for low temperature investigations. We have Hall sensor manufacturing capabilities using the facilities of the Submicron Center (GaAs MBE, optical and e-beam lithography).
