Welcome Xiao Hou, a new PhD student! Xiao will be working on growth and characterization of the topological insulator/superconductor interfaces using MBE, TEM, and ARPES. The position is funded through the ML4Q Excellence Cluster.
We have mounted a new manipulator that will allow cooling the sample to below 10K. We are looking forward to testing it when the lab operations are allowed.

Welcome Mohammed Qahosh, a new PhD student! Mohammed will be working on magnetic topological insulators. The position is funded through the PGSB.
Summer and Fall 2020
The work in FZ Juelich has been affected by COVID restrictions. Fortunately, during the time when operations were allowed Tristan was able to complete the calibration of our laser spin-ARPES and perform interesting measurements.
We made successful measurements on Bharti’s twisted 2D layers at the MAESTRO beamline at ALS.
