Tailoring superconducting hybrid multilayered film systems for electric and electronic applications

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • The main aim of this project is to develop and understand new multilayered superconducting hybrid film systems and junctions, consisting of superconductor/ferromagnet combinations. The properties of these systems will dramatically enhance the current-carrying abilities of superconductors for power applications, and will enable the exploitation of known and novel tuneable quantum phenomena for electronic applications. The project is expected to deliver new types of thin-film based materials, innovative technologies for their fabrication down to the nano-scale, new functionality of these systems and novel methodology for measurement. This combination will lead to intriguing, fundamental and practical scientific discoveries.
