Quantum Materials Group
The overarching goal of the Eley Quantum Materials Group is understand the role of disorder on the electronic and magnetic properties of quantum materials and devices.
Specifically, we study vortex-defect interactions in superconductors, skyrmion-defect interactions in magnetic materials, and the effects of a material’s microstructure on energy loss in superconducting circuits. To achieve these goals, our lab is capable of magnetometry and electrical transport measurements in variable temperatures (down to the millikelvin range) and magnetic fields (up to several tesla).
One of the facets of research is on vortex dynamics in superconductors.
See the paper published on different types of defects on flux creep in materials.
