Nanopatterned Superconductors for Energy and ICT Applications

Tildelt: kr 3,2 mill.

This project addresses key questions and challenges in modern research on superconductors as important materials for energy transport/storage and electronic devices. In any such application the central issue is how to avoid motion of the Abrikosov vortice s, which represent both energy loss and electrodynamic noise. In this project we propose to use modern nanotechnological methods and make systematic investigations of how artificially created pinning centers in thin film superconductors can improve vortex pinning and thereby the electromagnetic properties. Studies of specific nano-structural patterns in 0, 1 and 2 dimensions are proposed. We will use our unique high-resolution magneto-optical imaging facility as main experimental tool, and combine the exp erimental efforts with theoretical modeling. A large network of international collaborators will allow us a rich supply of state-of-the-art quality samples.
