Working Group New Materials, Transport, Thermodynamics and Mesoscopics

Head: Dr. Christoph Meingast

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.
