Spin-orbit effects in the supercurrent response of superconducting heterostructures and Josephson junctions


Abstract

The project aims at a deeper understanding of spin-orbit interaction (SOI) effects in super­conduc­tivity both in epitaxial Al/InAs-heterostructures an nanopatterned arrays of Josephson junc­tions based on these heterostructures. In addition, we will study the supercurrent response and spon­taneous supercurrents in other quasi-two-dimensional films combining strong SOI and supercon­ductivity. Besides standard transport measurements, we will employ kinetic inductance measure­ments and scanning Hall microscopy.
