Graphene structure

Glimpse inside a gra­phene sand­wich

In the search for novel types of superconductors – phases of matter that that conduct electric current without loss – scientists are investigating materials that consist of multiple layers. A team led by Mathias Scheurer from the University of Innsbruck has studied in detail the properties of a system of three twisted graphene layers and gained important insights into its properties.

Mi­cro­ca­vi­ties as a sen­sor plat­form

Sensors are a pillar of the Internet of Things, providing the data to control all sorts of objects. Here, precision is essential, and this is where quantum technologies could make a difference. Researchers in Innsbruck and Zurich are now demonstrating how nanoparticles in tiny optical resonators can be transferred into quantum regime and used as high-precision sensors.
