Nanostructures and nanoelectromechanical devices for precise control of topological defects/matter in superfluid helium

Project description

Novel instrument could probe topological defects in superfluid helium

Nanotechnology instrument applications such as electron microscopy have revolutionised medicine, materials science and other fields. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the N2PCON project aims to produce better instruments to study superfluid helium. Superfluidity in helium has been known and studied since 1938. However, there is still no adequate description for the topological defects as the superconducting coherence lengths of topological objects in helium are not long. N2PCON is expected to produce nanoscale instruments that surpass state-of-the-art devices in both performance and resolution.
