The group focuses
on the study of superconductors.
Our main projects are:
Tunneling and point-contact
spectroscopy into High Tc superconductors. We specialized in forming and
measuring planar junction into YBCO. Recently we acquire Omicron SXM
Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) for spectroscopy measurements at low
- Thin film
deposition by RF and DC sputtering. We
specialize in making high quality 2-3" YBCO wafers on top of Sapphire for
application. In addition we deposit films at different crystallographic
orientations, doping levels and include different supplement materials.
Recent work, showed the possibility of making atomically flat a-axis grain
of YBCO grown on top c-axis films which open a variety of research
transport mechanism is Ferro-Super junctions. Using the
Nano-center facilities we are able to produce
structures of few hundred nanometer size. These are used to explore
non-local phenomena that occur in a Ferro-Super boundary (G. Deutscher
and D. Feinberg,
Appl. Phys. Lett. 76, 487 (2000)).
