  • Currently focused on the fabrication of very high quality Nb and Nb3Ge based superconductors for micro and nanosquids applications and also to study the effect of quantum fluctuations on superconductivity for very thin (~ 10 nm) superconducting nanowires. Also working on NbxGd1-x based thin films with varying x for the study of quantum phase transition and to find the phase diagram.
