Magnetism and Superconductivity
​The magnetism and superconductivity research group is part of the Wihuri Physical laboratory and our main research intrests are high-temperature superconductors, and magnetic perovskites.
The electrical resistance of superconductors is zero below the critical temperature, which depends on the material, but is about 100 K for the high-temperature superconductors. Our research topics in high-temperature superconductivity are connected to flux pinning in YBa2Cu3O6+x thin films.
The crystal structure and magnetic interactions in magnetic perovskites lead to interesting phenomena, such as almost 100 % spin polarization and colossal magnetoresistance. These materials are promising for spintronics components. Our research in this field includes:
  • La1-xCaxMnO3 thin films
  • Sr2FeMoO6 powders and thin films
  • La1-xSrxMnO3/organic spacer/Co spin-valves
  • Pr1-xCaxMnO3 thin films
