Research Interests: Our research group is aimed at understanding correlated electron systems on the microscale, with an emphasis on their behavior in strong magnetic fields. We employ Focused Ion Beam microstructuring to prepare mesoscale structures from single crystals of strongly correlated materials, with a focus on pnictide high-temperature superconductors, heavy fermion systems, unconventional low-temperature superconductors and topological metals. The typical dimensions of the crystalline structures range between 50micron and 100nm, and thus allow to study the interplay between the finite size and the relevant physical length scale of the material, such as a coherence length or domain size. We are also developing new experimental techniques in high magnetic fields based on microstructures, and are regular users of both the dc- and pulsed field facility.
