Welcome to the Kurter Lab

Our research interests lie in various distinct but related areas with a primary focus on unconventional quantum phenomena in mesoscopic superconductors and Josephson devices. A Josephson junction is a weak link between two superconducting leads. The weak link could be any non-superconducting material such as insulator, normal metal, semiconductor or a topological insulator. We utilize a variety of methods to probe these materials and devices such as Andreev reflection/tunneling spectroscopy, Josephson interferometry, magnetotransport and microwave transport at ultra-low temperatures.
