Quantum electronics: Investigating electron transport in quantum conductors

Graphisches Slider Element

We study how the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics govern electronic transport in micro or nano-devices made of exotic quantum materials. In particular, topological phases represent an ideal playground with rich and exotic physics connected to the peculiar topological properties of the electronic wave functions in those materials.

We have developed an expertise in quantum electrical transport with a specialty on dynamical transport at the nano-second scale, in combination with noise and current correlation techniques. Our experiments are performed at extremely low temperatures (20 mK) and often under strong magnetic fields (up to 9 T).

With these experiments, we wish to explore the novel physics of topological matter, in particular evidence the presence of Majorana fermions, and propose prototypes for innovative devices based on these materials.
