Engineering Quench Resilience via Topological Transitions: a Proposal

We are presenting a poster at the European Conference on Applied Superconductivity on Thursday. It presents work carried out by members of the USC collaboration at Kent,  Bristol and RAL in collaboration also with Chris Hooley (St Andrews). In it we propose that chemically-tuning certain superconductors to a topological transition state may help make them more resilient to quenches. This may be the first proposal of an application of topological transitions outside the field on quantum information processing. One of the aims of our collaboration is to help bridge the gap between fundamental research in superconductivity and its applications.

Follow this link for a PDF of the poster. Supplemental material (animations) will also be available there shortly.


Two PDRA’s now in post

With the arrival of Sudeep K. Ghosh, who took up post as a PDRA in the University of Kent yesterday, and Gabor Csire, who joined Bristol in a similar capacity recently, our tem is now fully assembled and already working hard at solving some of the most intriguing puzzles in superconductivity research.
