How to identify a Majorana zero mode in an ultrafast way

Riku’s paper on ultrafast signatures of Majorana zero modes is online. Congrats! This was a very nice collaboration with our friends Enrico Perfetto and Gianluca Stefanucci in Rome as well as Robert van Leeuwen in Jyväskylä.

UXSS 2019 at CFEL Hamburg

Michael is organizing UXSS 2019, taking place in Hamburg, June 16-21, 2019. The ultrafast x-ray summer seminar (UXSS) is an annual school aimed at PhD students and junior postdocs working on or interested in learning about x-ray methods at free-electron laser sources. Topics range from basics of x-ray sources via atomic and molecular physics and… Continue reading UXSS 2019 at CFEL Hamburg

Cavity superconductivity

Our paper on cavity QED superconductivity is online: arXiv:1802.09437. We propose to use the coupling of matter to quantized photon modes inside a cavity to enhance electron-phonon coupling and influence superconductivity.

Charge pumping in graphene

Riku’s paper with Mike Ridley on charge pumping in ac-driven graphene nanoribbons has been published in Physical Review B. Congrats! Popular summary: Typically, electronic current flowing through a conductor needs a net voltage to be applied across the conductor. However, applying an alternating voltage, which is zero on average, may induce a direct current. This… Continue reading Charge pumping in graphene
