Welcome to the Superconductivity and Magnetism Low-Temperature Laboratory

See our projects

Our research unit (group) is called SUPERMAGLAB = “Superconductivity and Magnetism Low-Temperature Laboratory”. As it follows from the group title, our research activities are focused on unconventional superconductivity, magnetism and their coexistence in novel materials. The overarching goal is the development of advanced approaches and identification of new phenomena relevant for energy-related quantum technologies, specifically based on magnetic quantum effects. This generally requires very low temperatures and, often, high magnetic fields. More details can be found on our Projects page.

We are part of the Condensed Matter Physics group of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University and Ames Laboratory (operated by the U.S. Department of Energy).
