Tunable Josephson Junctions

added on 11 May 2019, 13:00

A practical guide to quantum phase transitions in quantum-dot-based tunable Josephson junctions by A. Kadlecová, M. Žonda, V. Pokorný, and T. Novotný you can now find in Physical Review Applied. Their results enable fast and efficient, yet reliable characterization and design of such nanoscopic tunable Josephson-junction devices.

Meta-Contacted Benzene

added on 24 February 2018, 15:17

R. Sýkora and T. Novotný commented on a paper discussing a question "Is the Antiresonance in Meta-Contacted Benzene Due to the Destructive Superposition of Waves Traveling Two Different Routes around the Benzene Ring?"

Ultrafast relaxation dynamics

added on 2 December 2017, 13:10

P. Maldonado, K. Carva et al. presented a research on ultrafast relaxation dynamics in metals. They developed an out-of-equilibrium theory that captures the full dynamic evolution of the electronic and phononic populations and provides a microscopic description of the transfer of energy delivered optically into electrons to the lattice.

Handbook of Magnetic Materials

added on 2 December 2017, 13:00

K. Carva, P. Baláž, and I. Radu contributed to the Handbook of Magnetic Materials (vol. 26) with a chapter entitled Laser-Induced Ultrafast Magnetic Phenomena.
