Dr. Athanasios Koliogiorgos has joined our team in October. We wish him a creative and successful post-doctoctoral stay.

Dark excitons lighten up in a magnetic field

19 Jul 2022, 18:00

The luminescence spectrum of excitons in ReS2 resembles the transitions in a free atom (Rydberg series), except that some transitions are missing, they are “dark”. This is due to interactions, as detailed by the theoretical calculations of A. Slobodenyuk, and verified by measurements in magnetic fields.

Josephson Junction Amplifier

11 May 2022, 0:00

Josephson junctions can operate as amplifiers of rather weak signals coming from quantum technology. But how is the amplification affected by the very quantum zero-point fluctuations? We have addressed this question in a recent communication.

Electron pockets go superconducting

22 Apr 2022, 17:49

Room-temperature superconductivity is one of the holy grails of solid state physics. Our paper on the monolayer FeSe on Si(001) sheds light on a possible microscopic mechanism by which the transition temperature could increase.


Our group also participates in COST Action Nanoscale Coherent Hybrid Devices for Superconducting Quantum Technologies (Nanocohybri), supported by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST)
