Electrical Transport

Steven Schofield

Dr Schofield's main research interests are in the investigation and manipulation of matter at the atomic scale for fundamental science and for the development of new strategies for constructing devices that exploit quantum properties. He is pursuing these goals through the creation and manipulation of quantum states on surfaces both by the direct manipulation of the intrinsic states at surfaces, and through the molecular functionalization of surfaces using organic molecules.

Franco Cacialli

Prof Cacialli's  research interests focus on the physics and applications of organic and more generally printable semiconductors with emphasis on organic optoelectronics and photonics. Research interests include supramolecular architectures for control and tailoring of intermolecular interactions and photophysics, high-resolution nanolithographic patterning of organic semiconductors, near infrared organic photonics and optoelectronics, as well as visible (and nearly-visible) organic light communications systems [(N)OVILICs].

How can one increase the maximum current which can flow in a superconductor without any resistance?
The semiconductor silicon and the ferromagnet iron are the basis for much of mankind’s technology, used in everything from compute
