We gratefully acknowledge our funding sources:

  • Scottish Universities Physics Alliance (SUPA) (Homepage)
  • EPSRC through the standard grants “Controlling Emergent Orders in Quantum Materials” (EP/R031924/1) and “Strain-Tuning of Emergent states of Matter” (EP/S005005/1), as well as the equipment grants “Measurement Suite for the Accelerated Design of Advanced, Quantum and Functional Materials” (EP/T031441/1) and “Thin film x-ray diffraction” (EP/T023449/1)
  • Royal Society of Edinburgh through the RSE-CNR scheme for atomic-scale imaging of superconducting triplet condensates as a possible platform for topological quantum computations
  • NIHR/UKRI through the grant “Suppressing SARS-CoV-2 transmission in public spaces through surface engineering” (MR/V028464/1)

Further, we are member of theĀ International Max-Planck-Partnership between Scottish Universities and five Max-Planck Institutes “Measurement and Observation at the Quantum Limit” (MOQL) and the International Max-Planck-Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials.

The group is located at the School of Physics and Astronomy in St Andrews, and is part of the Centre for Designer Quantum Materials.
