Ola’s Ph.D. dissertation

Last but not least, Oladunjoye Awoga also successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis this spring, making it three Ph.D. graduates in our group this year! On June 11th he defended his thesis “Studies of topological superconductors via defects” with Prof. Pascal Continue Reading …

Tomas’ Ph.D. dissertation

On May 25th Tomas Löthman defended his Ph.D. thesis “Robust Platforms for Superconductivity: Disorder Robustness and Topological Density of States Peaks” with Prof. Carsten Honerkamp, RWTH Aachen as the opponent. The pandemic kept the lecture hall attendance down to Tomas and the chair with everyone Continue Reading …

Johann’s Ph.D. dissertation

Big congratulations to Johann Schmidt who very successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis “Topological superconductivity in multi orbital materials” on November 20th! Opponent was Prof. Karyn Le Hur from École Polytechnique. Due to the pandemic the lecture hall was almost empty, Continue Reading …

Group retreat!

We went to Krusenberg Herrgård and spent a nice and crisp fall day discussing future research plans and how to organize our work even better. Lots of good ideas and discussions!

NORDITA program and conference

During August we’re organizing a 4-week program with an embedded 4-day conference: Topological Quantum Matter: From Low-Temperature Physics to Non-Equilibrium Dynamics together with Jens Bardarson (KTH), Emil Bergholtz (Stockholm), Jan Budich (TU Dresden), and Roni Ilan (Tel Aviv) at Nordita, Continue Reading …
