Unconventional superconductivity and electronic transport in strongly correlated electron systems

Samenvatting

In recent years, great progress has been made in the creation, investigation and control of unconventional 2-dimensional electron systems arising at complex oxide interfaces. The prime objective of the FOM program is to elevate this research-field to the next level, by demonstrating the ability to specifically tailor the properties of such interfaces. In particular, we will realize high-quality, conducting interfaces in all-thin-film oxide combinations and will master the controllable creation of sub-10 nm functional electronic structures. Beyond helping uncover the quantum physics at work in these systems, these achievements will be major steps towards nano-electronic device development, in which we will pursue low-energy / high-speed switchability in top-gated field-effect devices, induction of spin-polarization in the 2-dimensional electron systems, the creation of memory-functionality and investigations towards unraveling the superconductivity in this system.

The topic of the visit is the research in the field of unconventional superconductivity and electronic transport in strongly correlated electron systems. Theoretical studies will be strongly linked to the experimental investigations which are carried out by Twente group in the framework of the DESCO National FOM program - Realization, nano structuring and characterization of oxide 2DEG structures and devices – 13DESCO01 (2015-2020, in collaboration with TUD, UvA, RUN, UL)

Prof.Kagan made a very important contribution to the modern condensed matter physics and investigations of novel materials. His expertise and skills are complimentary to those of the Twente University team.

Prof. Kagan will take part in the following NWO projects:

DESCO National FOM program - Realization, nano structuring and characterization of oxide 2DEG structures and devices – 13DESCO01

The foreseen interaction of Prof. Kagan with the scientists in Twente is deemed to be a great additional benefit.
