We investigate thermodynamic and transport properties of solid state systems with strong electronic correlations. We also study electronic transport at mesoscopic length scales. The experiments strongly rely upon high-quality single crystals which are grown in-house. Our current interests focuses on unconventional superconductivity, quantum critical phenomena, magnetism, single-electron devices and nanoscaled Josephson junctions arrays.
We use a variety of experimental techniques (high-resolution capacitance dilatometry, calorimetry, magnetometry and state-of-the-art transport measurements) in a broad temperature range (10 mK - 500 K) and in magnetic fields up to 14 Tesla.
