We are recruiting and look for highly motivated postdoctoral researchers who are keen to do cutting edge research and work with multiple techniques. This position is within the collaborative programme grant TOPNES, for details please have a look at the … Continue reading
Education Secretary Angela Constance officially opened our new ultra-low vibration (ULV) labs on 21 May. The event was attended by over 100 colleagues and guests. See full details and images here. The St Andrews ULV labs are the most advanced … Continue reading
You can hear about our work at Vortex 2015 in El Escorial, Spain. We’ll have two contributions: Monday, May 11th, 11:30-11:55: Peter Wahl: “Superconducting gap and vortex lattice of the heavy fermion compound CeCu2Si2“ Thursday, May 14th, 10:40-10:55: Ana Maldonado: … Continue reading
Our ultra-low vibration (ULV) labs are coming online. See below a photo of the almost completed building. We will soon start the first measurements in this bespoke new facility.
Superconductivity in non-centrosymmetric material promises to be unconventional, the lack of spatial inversion symmetry allows for a triplet component of the order parameter. For various non-centrosymmetric materials, evidence for a triplet component of the order parameter has been put forward. … Continue reading
