Prof. Dr. Michael Faley
My main interests lie in the following areas:
- Superconducting electronics, especially the development and applications of Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) for biomagnetic, geomagnetic and magnetic microscopy measurements.
- High-Tc Josephson junctions, multilayer superconducting flux transformers and SQUIDs on the basis of superconducting YBa2Cu3O7 thin films.
- Preparation of other epitaxial metal-oxide thin film heterostructures and the study of their microstructural and electron transport properties.
Current research studies focus on physics, technology and biomagnetic applications of high-Tc DC SQUID magnetometers, especially for magnetoencephalography. To date, I have produced over 150 scientific publications and 8 patents in the fields of superconducting electronics and epitaxial metal-oxide thin film heterostructures.
