Double nanowire Josephson junction device in the frontier of physics research
In recent work involving NanoLund's Lars Samuelson, Hongqi Xu and Sören Jeppesen closely collaborating with a group at University of Tokyo/RIKEN in Japan and a group at Peking University in China describes how they have successfully realized a double nanowire Josephson junction device and discovered an enhancement of supercurrent arising from coherent splits of Cooper pairs by 1D electron-electron correlation induced inter-wire superconductivity. The work published in Science Advances demonstrates that double nanowires can be used to design efficient sources of spin-entangled electrons for quantum information processing and to developing topological quantum devices for quantum computations.
