"Growth and characterization of materials and devices of reduced dimensionality: thin films of superconductors and other advanced materials, micro-patterned and/or nano-structured systems"


-1.1. Growth of thin films of metallic and complex materials

Growth of thin films of superconductors and other materials (semiconductors, etc.) as well as their structure characterization after causing in them micropatterning (microbridges, etc.) and/or nanostructuring (gating with ionic liquids and/or nanomasks, use of nanostructured substrates, etc.). In connection with this, the LBTS Research Group is a partner of the European COST network NanoSC for the research in nanostructured superconductors.
