Physikalisches Institut


We do basic research on physical properties of superconducting and magnetic layer systems (single crystals, thin film heterostructures).

Our main research activities are in the area of the investigation of electric transport properties at low temperature, with focus on tunneling and Josephson effects, quantum interferometry and nonlinearer dynamics.

The technoloy which we use for our research includes modern techniques in

Our research activities are integrated into various funded projects.

We frequently collaborate with other research teams. There exists an intensive collaboration with groups at the Univ. Tübingen, in particular within the Center for Quantum Science (CQ) and within the Center for Light-Matter-Interaction, Sensors & Analytics (LISA+), with the MPI for biological cybernetics in Tübingen (K. Scheffler), with groups in Germany (Univ. Bielefeld, PTB Berlin, PTB Braunschweig, IFW & TU Dresden, WMI Garching, KIT Karlsruhe, Univ. Kiel, TU Munich, MPI & Univ. Stuttgart, Univ. Ulm) and with international groups (Ames, Basel, Berkeley, Bordeaux, Chernogolovka, Enschede, Grenoble, Göteborg, Kyoto, Lausanne, Leuven, Los Alamos, Manchester, Moskau, Nanjing, Neapel, Oslo, Tel Aviv, Trieste, Tsukuba, Zaragoza).

Our group is member of the Center for Quantum Science, of the Center for Light-Matter-Interaction, Sensors & Analytics (LISA+) at Univ. Tübingen and of the Transregio SFB/TR21 "Control of Quantum Correlations in Tailored Matter" (Co.Co.Mat) (Stuttgart/Ulm/Tübingen).
