Statistical Physics, Magnetism and Superconductivity
SPSMS - Head: Jean-Pascal BRISON


The Service de Physique Statistique, Magnétisme et Supraconductivité (SPSMS) develops an active research programme in modern problems of condensed matter physics with main directions related to magnetism, superconductivity and systems of reduced size in the nanometer range. Special attention is paid to the boundaries between these research areas, like for the phenomena of the coexistence of superconductivity and magnetic order or for the interface properties on a nanometer scale between a superconductor and a normal metal. Electronic correlations play a major role in the studied phenomena. These correlations occur in intermetallic compounds based on rare earth and actinide elements, transition metal oxides, but also in quantum dot structures of reduced size.

Magnetism and Neutron Diffraction (MDN)

Instrumentation, Material and Correlated Electrons Physics (IMAPEC)

Quantum Electronic Transport and Superconductivity (LATEQS)

Theoretical Physics (GT)

Magnetism and Frustration (GMF)


The service consists of three main research laboratories specialized in, respectively, neutron scattering experiments and low temperature investigations and of two research groups for, respectively, crystal growth and condensed matter physics theory. Close links exist between the different parts of the service in order to perform complementary investigations on a common problem. Special attention is paid to the development of experimental techniques under extreme conditions of low temperatures, high magnetic fields and high pressures.

Contact : Massimo Mongillo
Using a single silicon nanowire, we have made the first prototype of a multipurpose device which can be used as a field effect transistor, a Schottky diode or a p-n diode. We obtain these functions using electrostatic gates to control the interfaces between the metallic source and drain contacts, ... More »
