SEMINAR: "STRING THEORY, QUANTIZATION AND FLUXES"

 

 

 

 

 

Given by: Mª del Pilar García del Moral Zabala

Date and hour: Wednesday 27 February 2019, 11:30h

Place: Polivalent Room of the Department of Applied Physics, Faculty of Science, Phase 2 (2nd Floor)

Abstract:

In this talk I will address several goals that string theory, and M-theory as a unification theory, have to achieve in order to be quantum consistent theories modelling our world. I will discuss the role that fluxes can play to this respect when applied to the M2-brane theory based on our latest results.

SEMINAR: "CHALLENGES IN 2D-TOPOLOGICAL INSULATORS INVESTIGATED BY NOVEL PROBES"

 

 

 

 

Given by: Reyes Calvo Urbina

Date and hour: Tuesday, 26 february 2019, 12:00h

Place: Polivalent Room of the Department of Applied Physics, Faculty of Science, Phase 2 (2nd Floor)

Abstract:

In the Quantum Spin Hall textbook picture, a 2-dimensional topologically non-trivial insulator (2D-TI) is expected to present conductive edge states protected against backscattering. The application of a magnetic field should lift this protection, and above a critical field the material would enter a trivial insulator regime, where the edge conduction fully disappears.

 

In real 2d-TI materials, such as inverted HgTe quantum wells, however, the picture is more complex and scattering occurs over long enough distances (around microns). Furthermore, although the resistance of the devices increases in the presence of a magnetic field, certain predictions, such as the complete removal of edge conduction have not yet been directly probed.

 

In our work, we use novel probe techniques to tackle some of the above challenges for HgTe quantum wells. Microwave Impedance Microscopy and magnetotransport experiments allow us to probe the properties of helical states under broken time reversal symmetry and reveal that edge conduction persists unexpectedly at high magnetic fields and. Scanning Gate Microscopy measurements allow us to identify the microscopic origin of scattering in the Quantum Spin Hall edge states and reveals signatures of coexistence of topological with trivial edge states.

SEMINAR: " MAGNETISM AND SUPERCONDUCTIVITY AT THE ATOMIC SCALE"

 

 

 

 

Given by: Carmen Rubio Verdú

Date and hour: Wednesday, 13 february 2019, 12:00h

Place: Polyvalent Room of the Department of Applied Physics, Faculty of Sciences, Phase 2 (2nd Floor)

Abstract:

Magnetic anisotropy is the preference of an atom’s spin to be aligned along a certain spatial direction. The Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) gives access to such individual magnetic moments through low-temperature Scanning Tunneling Spectroscopy (STS). In this talk I will show how both the magnetic moment, which defines the atomic spin S, and the interactions with the metallic substrate govern the spectral properties of single atoms and molecules.

A step further into the understanding of individual spins is to study their effect on a superconducting substrate. When a dilute amount of magnetic impurities is placed on top of a superconductor, they create a potential that locally distorts the Cooper pairs bath, while the mesoscopic superconducting characteristics remain unaltered [1]. The coupling of the impurity to the substrate create Yu-Shiba-Rusinov bound states [2-4], which can be studied down to the μeV energy range in STS measurements performed with superconducting STM tips.

In the search of new superconducting materials, we find Transition Metal Dichalcogenides as a new platform of crystalline layered materials that can be isolated down to the single-layer limit. In this regard, single-layer NbSe2 [5] is envisioned as an ideal system for the study of superconductivity in two dimensions. We extracted the statistical distribution of the superconducting gap width and observed that it is well described by an asymmetric log-normal distribution which is indicative of emergent granularity in the presence of disorder, and reflects the multifractal nature of the superconductor eigenstates [6].
