Research question

This project aims to theoretically explore, and engineer enhanced and entirely new spintronics functionalities using superconducting hybrid structures, with a particular focus on both avoiding the need for complicated ferromagnets and raising operating temperatures. To achieve these goals, this project will investigate novel spin-orbit coupled materials and high-temperature superconductors by using analytical and numerical methods within a quantum mechanical description. 

Sustainability aspects

Superconducting spintronics has the potential to not only revolution the IT technology but also to dramatically reduce the energy consumption because superconductivity is the only known phenomenon where electricity is always transported entirely without loss.
