Add to Calendar 11/8/2019 1:00 pm 11/8/2019 America/Chicago Condensed Matter Seminar: "Josephson Detection of Multiband Effects in Superconductors." DESCRIPTION:

The study of unconventional superconducting materials remains an active frontier of condensed matter physics. Exotic superconductivity, such as high T_C, topological, and heavy-fermion superconductors, often rely on phase sensitive measurements to determine the underlying pairing and/or the nature of novel excitations. In this talk I will detail the use of Josephson effect to detect novel properties of two multiband superconducting systems: NbSe_2 [1] and SnTe [2]. Focus will primarily be given modification of conventional Josephson effects due to the loss of time reversal symmetry found to exist in proximity-induced Josephson junction of SnTe nanowires [2]. These works open new routes to exploration of multiband effects in superconductors and have important implications for topological states in superconducting materials.
