QuantERA - MAGMA project
This summer, the MAGMA project of the European QuantERA programme for Research and Innovation in Quantum Technologies has officially started. In this project, theory, modeling, fabrication, and experiment will be combined to study the interplay between magnetism and superconductivity in state-of-the-art nano-electronic devices based on magnetic topological materials. This hybrid system has properties that are very promising for realizing robust topological states that can serve as future building blocks for quantum computation.

A European consortium with partner institutions in Luxembourg (Univ. of Luxembourg), Germany (Forschungszentrum Jülich, Peter Grünberg Institute 9), Spain (Univ. of Balearic Islands), and the United Kingdom (Imperial College London) will work on the MAGMA project, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Thomas Schmidt (Univ. of Luxembourg). At Peter Grünberg Institute 9, three Principal Investigators (Prof. Dr. Thomas Schäpers, Dr. Peter Schüffelgen, and Dr. Kristof Moors) and their team members will contribute to the project with device fabrication, measurements, and modeling. The project has received 1.2M EUR of funding from the National Research Fund, Luxembourg, the German Research Foundation, and the State Research Agency, Spain, and will run until the Summer of 2025.
