Manipulating superconducting plasma waves with terahertz light
Terahertz illumination amplifies Josephson plasma waves in high temperature superconductors, potentially paving the way for stabilizing fluctuating superconductivityRead more
In October 2013, the ERC Synergy Grant research project Frontiers in Quantum Materials’ Control (Q-MAC) has started.
The four collaborating research teams are located at the University of Geneva and the University of Oxford as well as the École Polytechnique near Paris and the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg.
During the next six years, a combination of material design, quantum optics theory, as well as ultrafast laser and x-ray physics shall be used to realize ultrahigh temperature superconductivity. For this project, the scientists were awarded about 10 million Euros by the European Research Council.
