Superconducting circuits are not useful only for building a universal quantum computer or exploring quantum optics, but also for example for studying light-harvesting models. In our recent paper A Potočnik et al., Nat. Commun. 9, 904 (2018) we have experimentally demonstrated how can superconducting circuits be used to study models of energy transport in disordered…
We recently published our first high-pressure NMR results on f.c.c. Cs3C60 polymorph. We found some new exciting superconducting properties close to the metal-to-insulator boundary – the superconducting gap increases close to the boundary! Found out more in A. Potočnik, et al. Sci. Rep. 4, 4265, 2014.
We are studying normal-state and superconducting properties of hyper-expanded A3C60 (A = K, Rb, Cs). We have shown that these materials resemble unconventional superconductors like cuprates. Intense research of normal-state and superconducting properties of these materials close to the metal-to-insulator transition is in progress. A.Y. Ganin, et al. Nature 2010.
We are studying Jahn-Teller (JT) effect in alkali-doped fullerene materials like RbxCs3-xC60, and MAK3C60 (MA = CH3NH2). We have shown that Jahn-Teller effect is completely dominated by strong steric effects in MAK3C60 (A. Potočnik, et al. PRB 2012).
We developed high-hydrostatic pressure probes for EPR (X-band) and NMR experiments. Our clamp-type cells can continuously reach up to 1.2 GPa and 2.5 GPa for EPR and NMR experiments, respectively. EPR high-pressure cell allows also measurements with pulse techniques. Anvil-type cells for achieving even higher pressures are currently being developed.
