  1. 1. Noise and electrical properties of YBCO nanostructures

    Author : Edoardo Trabaldo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SQUID; nanowire.; noise; YBCO; HTS;

    Abstract : This thesis work deals with the investigation of noise properties in cuprate High critical Temperature Superconductor (HTS) YBCO nanoscale devices. Here the aim is to get a better understanding of nanoscale fluctuations in the normal state of HTS from which superconductivity evolves. READ MORE

  2. 2. Resistivity and the solid-to-liquid transition in high-temperature superconductors

    Author : Beatriz Espinosa Arronte; Magnus Andersson; Charles Simon; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; high-temperature superconductors; vortex dynamics; vortex solid-to-liquid transition; critical scaling; glass transition; Bose glass; heavy-ion irradiation; YBCO; Tl2Ba2CaCu2O8 d; oxygen deficiency.; Condensed matter physics; Kondenserade materiens fysik;

    Abstract : In high-temperature superconductors a large region of the magnetic phase diagram is occupied by a vortex phase that displays a number of exciting phenomena. At low temperatures, vortices form a truly superconducting solid phase which at high temperatures turns into a dissipative vortex liquid. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Zero and Low Field Vortex Dynamics : An Experimental Study of Type-II Superconductors

    Author : Örjan Festin; Peter Svedlindh; Piero Martinoli; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Engineering physics; high temperature superconductors; thermal fluctuations; YBCO; MgB2; anisotropic superconductors; vortex dynamics; Kosterlitz-Thouless transition; current voltage characteristics; complex conductivity; Flux noise; Teknisk fysik; Engineering physics; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : Dynamic properties of type-II superconductors have been experimentally studied in zero and low magnetic fields using SQUID magnetometry and I–V measurements.In zero magnetic field close to the critical temperature, the physical properties of type-II superconductors are dominated by spontaneously created vortices.

  4. 4. Reshaping the phase diagram of YBa2Cu3O7-δ through strain in ultrathin films and nanowires

    Author : Eric Wahlberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; High-Tc superconductors; thin-films; underdoped; nanowires; charge density wave; strange metal; YBCO; phase-slip;

    Abstract : This thesis aims at adding important pieces to the puzzle of understanding the physics of the High critical Temperature Superconductor (HTS) cuprates, where despite over 30 years of intense research many open questions remain. The HTS cuprates are characterized by an incredibly complex phase diagram with multiple intertwined local orders, such as charge density waves (CDW). READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of high-Tc SQUID magnetometers for on-scalp MEG

    Author : Minshu Xie; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nanowire junctions; on-scalp MEG; Bicrystal grain boundary; magnetoencephalography; YBCO; magnetometers; high-Tc SQUIDs;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the development of high critical temperature superconducting quantum interference device (high-Tc SQUID) magnetometers based on bicrystal grain boundary and nanowire junctions for the potential use in on-scalp magnetoencephalography (MEG), which is a new generation MEG technique with reduced sensor-to-subject standoff distances.MEG is a method of mapping neural dynamics in the human brain by recording the magnetic fields produced by neural currents.
