Nominator's project description

Dr. Bergeret is well known internationally for his outstanding research in quantum transport, superconductivity and related topics in Condensed Matter Physics. He has made ground-breaking predictions on the interplay between superconductivity and magnetism in hybrid systems, which opened up new lines of research, and pioneering works on non-equilibrium superconductivity and thermoelectricity. During his stay in Germany, he intends to explore transport properties of two dimensional superconducting structures with strong spin-orbit coupling.
