The chair of Quantum Transport in Matter (QTM), headed by Alexander Brinkman, is part of the MESA+ Institute of Nanotechnology and the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Twente.
The research addresses quantum aspects of electronic transport in novel materials and devices. Examples of materials under study are correlated electron systems such as novel superconductors, oxides interfaces, and topological insulators. State-of-the-art materials science and nanotechnology is combined with ultrasensitive transport measurements to reveal novel quasiparticles such as Majorana fermions and magnetic monopoles.
The chair of QTM is embedded in the Interfaces and Correlated Electrons (ICE) group. Please consult the ICE website for more information on QTM people, research topics, publications and latest news.
