Secondment at AALTO, summer 2018

Geometry of the considered system

I have done my secondment at AALTO University with Pekola's (PICO) group. I started my collaboration with ESR Bayan Karimi and Professor Jukka Pekola. I have started studying the proximity effect and the charge and heat transport in superconductor-normal metal (SN) contacts in order to model an ultra-sensitive thermometer.

The work is being done in the framework of the quasiclassical Green's function approach in the dirty limit (The Usadel formalism). I concentrate on the quasiparticle current as well as the supercurrent.

The continuation of our theoretical work on radiative heat transfer between parallel metal sheets has been published! This work examines the competition between far field (traveling waves) and near fi

Last secondment started!!

Unfortunately it will be a "remote secondment", but I am really excited because we thought about an interesting project to collaborate again with the guys of Chalmers. I will soon ship some samples to
