Findings from Nagoya University Yields New Data on Low Dimensional Structures

February 18, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Investigators publish new report on Low Dimensional Structures. According to news reporting from Nagoya, Japan, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Tunneling conductance spectra of normal metal/insulator/superconductor (N/I/S)junctions are calculated to determine the potential of tunneling spectroscopy in investigations of topological superconductivity."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Nagoya University, "Peculiar feature of topological superconductors is the formation of gapless edge states in them. Since the conductance of N/I/S junctions is sensitive to the formation of these edge states, topological superconductivity can be identified through edge-state detection."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Herein, the effects of Fermi surface anisotropy and an applied magnetic field on the conductance spectra are analyzed to gather indications that can help to identify the topological nature of actual materials."
