Visit of Ethiopian and Ugandan delegation at IMPRS-STNS

The MLU is working on a project with the Addis Ababa University (AAU), Ethiopia and Gulu University (GU), Uganda. As part of the sub-project "Building up a Graduate Program Hub", the delegation together with the head of InGrA (International Graduate Academy of MLU) Thomas Michael also visited MPI and specifically our graduate school IMPRS-STNS. more

Cooper pairs with finite momentum rectify supercurrent flow

In a paper published in Nature Physics, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Halle show that a lateral Josephson junction made from a type-II Dirac semimetal Nickel di-telluride (NiTe2) and superconducting Niobium (Nb) electrodes exhibits a large nonreciprocal critical current such that a non-dissipative supercurrent flows in the "forward" direction but a normal dissipative current flows in the "backward" direction. more

IMPRS - Summer Retreat 2022

At Schkopau Castle, the IMPRS-STNS students met for their annual retreat. Besides the scientific program, the students, especially the newcomers, got to know each other and learned more about the different thesis projects. more
