RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

EXPERIMENTAL FACILITIES
We have several laboratories available at Politecnico di Torino (department of Physics) and at INFN National Laboratories (LNL and LNS), all of them equipped with cryogenic systems. The whole set of available experimental facilities and techniques (listed below) allows us to efficiently characterize not only superconducting materials and devices, but also magnetic materials and oxides.

MAIN RESEARCH TOPICS
By means of such complementary experimental tools we developed expertise on several fundamental and applicative research topics. Among them:
vortex dynamics in superconductors (SCs)
effects of particle radiation on the properties of SCs and oxides
SC/ferromagnet heterostructures
superconducting THz sensors
superconducting microwave passive devices
electromagnetic properties of doped two-band SCs
shielding solutions for magnetic field mitigation
