Dr. Zorica Popovic from University of Belgrade received the ITC conference grant to participate in Conference „Quantum Coherent Phenomena at Nanoscale 2019“, which took place in Ischia, Italy between 19 and 22 June 2019. This international conference is dedicated to a variety of aspects of experimental and theoretical studies of low temperature quantum properties in nano-sized systems.
During the conference I gave a lecture entitled Quasiparticle transport properties in superconductor-ferromagnet-superconductor trilayers. The lecture covered a qualitative theory describing the behaviour of current-voltage characteristics (CVC) and conductances for both s-wave and d-wave type of ballistic voltage-biased superconductor/ferromagnet/superconductor junction. My talk was based on the main results published in several papers (Phys. Rev. B 85 174510 (2012), J. Phys. Soc. Jpn. 82, 114714 (2013), Prog. Theor.Exp. Phys. 2015, 103I01 (2015), Phys. Status Solidi B 255, 1700554 (2018)). I heard many interesting lectures on current research topics and in this way I learned about new developments in the field. In addition to theoretical papers related to Josephson junctions with ferromagnet (homogeneous or nonhomogeneous), of particular importance was to obtain an insight into the experimental technique and new results with this junctions.
