Investigating Topological Superconducting States in Ruthenate Films

E-mail : uchida[at]


A superconducting ruthenate has been intensively studied as a leading candidate of the topological superconductor. In this project, we aim to clarify topological superconducting states by experiments with its superconducting films and junctions.
