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

Multi-million euro grants from Brussels

12 Max Planck researchers win coveted ERC Advanced Grants more

Prof. Stuart Parkin stands in front of scientific equipment.

The European Research Council (ERC) has announced its new Advanced Grants for the year 2022. One of these coveted grants is awarded to Stuart Parkin. His ERC grant “SUPERMINT” will explore the science that could allow for a novel cryogenic racetrack memory that relies on the interplay between chirality, spin textures and superconductivity at manufactured interfaces. more
