Eskildsen Group
Superconductivity and Vortices
  Welcome Research People Publications Levitation Demo Vacancies Links  

Our group is dedicated to the fascinating physics of unusual and/or unconventional superconductors, with a strong emphasis on understanding the fundamental properties of such materials.

We focus on experimental studies of vortices, and how they can be used to probe the detailed nature of the superconducting state of the host material.

Latest News & Events
Morten Eskildsen will give a condensed matter physics seminar at Michigan State University. He will present our latest results on kinematic and structural properties of the metastable vortex lattice phases in MgB2.
March 4, 2015
Our comprehensive SANS study of multiband superconductivity and Pauli paramagnetism in KFe2As2 was published as an Editors’ suggestion in PRB. In particular, we were able to separate orbital and paramagnetic contributions to the field modulation, providing a quantitative measure of the Pauli paramagnetic effects.
