Magnetism and Superconductivity Laboratory

About us

The laboratory is dedicated to research in the field of materials with magnetic or superconducting properties. The research process covers all the steps from preparation (bulk, thin films or nanostructures), going through basic structural characterization, and ending with in-depth analysis of the magnetic and superconducting properties.

Our mission is to unveil and comprehend the remarkable and yet important aspects related to Solid State Magnetism phenomena with emphasis on low dimensional induced effects.
