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.
