Our vision is to trigger a revolution in low-power information and communication technologies in an energy-efficient society.

QuSpin´s objective is to develop the basic science that uses quantum entities such as the electron spin as information carriers in radically different ways. We aim at groundbreaking basic research that is crucial to the  development of fast, high-capacity, material systems and tools for smaller and more power-efficient electronic devices.

Researcher Sol H. Jacobsen has received a FRIPRO Young Researcher Talents 2019 grant  from the Research Council of Norway for her project on Superconducting Triplet Spintronics: Generation, control and application.

With the help of curvature, cavities and spin-orbit coupling, the project will go beyond rigid proximity-coupled systems to explore new directions for low-dissipation superconducting spintronics. The funding will enable one PhD candidate and one PostDoc to join her as the project leader.

Professor Dennis Meier has received a ERC Consolidator Grant from for his project on Atronics- creating building blocks for atomic-scale electronics. 

With the project “ATRONICS”, Dennis and his team aim to emulate the behavior of electronic components at the atomic scale. The research will provide new insight into the physics of functional oxide materials and potentially lead to major breakthroughs in electronics. If the team succeeds, their research will enable energy efficient and ultra-small circuitry and networks, playing a key role in the transition from nano- to atomic-scale electronics. The funding will enable five new members to join his team over five years.
