Tunable biaxial strain device for low-dimensional materials
Vincent Pasquier, Alessandro Scarfato, José Martinez Castro, Antoine Guipet and Christoph Renner

Review of scientific instruments 94 1, 013905 (2023)

Strain is attracting much interest as a mean to tune the properties of thin exfoliated two-dimensional materials and their heterostructures. Numerous devices to apply tunable uniaxial strain are proposed in the literature, but only few for biaxial strain, often with a trade-off between maximum…

Determining spin-orbit coupling in graphene by quasiparticle interference imaging
Lihuan Sun, Louk Rademaker, Diego Mauro, Alessandro Scarfato, Arpad Pasztor, Ignacio Gutierrez Lezama, Zhen Wang, José Martinez Castro, Alberto Morpurgo and Christoph Renner

Nature communications 14 1, 3771 (2023)

Inducing and controlling spin-orbit coupling (SOC) in graphene is key to create topological states of matter, and for the realization of spintronic devices. Placing graphene onto a transition metal dichalcogenide is currently the most successful strategy to achieve this goal, but there is no…

Strain Dependence of the Charge Density Wave Phase Transition
Vincent Pasquier

Thèse (2023)

Strain, which results from the deformation of a material, is used as a tuning parameter to study the charge density wave (CDW) phase in transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). We have developed two bending devices to apply uniaxial or biaxial strain to low-dimensional materials. Characterization…

Wang-MacDonald d-wave vortex cores observed in heavily overdoped Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ
Tim Gazdic, Ivan Maggio-Aprile, Genda Gu and Christoph Renner

Physical Review X 11, 031040 (2021)

Low magnetic field scanning tunneling spectroscopy of individual Abrikosov vortices in heavily overdoped Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ unveils a clear d-wave electronic structure of the vortex core, with a zero-bias conductance peak at the vortex center that splits with increasing distance from the core. We…

Skyrmion-(Anti)Vortex Coupling in a Chiral Magnet-Superconductor Heterostructure
A. P. Petrović, M. Raju, X. Y. Tee, A. Louat, Ivan Maggio-Aprile, R. M. Menezes, M. J. Wyszyński, N. K. Duong, M. Reznikov, Christoph Renner, M. V. Milošević and C. Panagopoulos

Physical Review Letters 126 117205 (2021)

We report experimental coupling of chiral magnetism and superconductivity in [IrFeCoPt]/Nb heterostructures. The stray field of skyrmions with radius ≈50 nm is sufficient to nucleate antivortices in a 25 nm Nb film, with unique signatures in the magnetization, critical current, and flux dynamics, …

Multiband charge density wave exposed in a transition metal dichalcogenide
Arpad Pasztor, Alessandro Scarfato, Marcello Spera, Felix Flicker, Céline Barreteau, Enrico Giannini, Jasper van Wezel and Christoph Renner

Nature communications 12 1, 6037 (2021)

In the presence of multiple bands, well-known electronic instabilities may acquire new complexity. While multiband superconductivity is the subject of extensive studies, the possibility of multiband charge density waves (CDWs) has been largely ignored so far. Here, combining energy dependent…

Ultracompact Binary Permanent Rare-Earth Magnet with 1.25-T Center Field and Fast-Decaying Stray Field
Jean-Marie Poumirol, Adrien Bercher, Tetiana Slipchenko, Ivan Maggio-Aprile, Christoph Renner and Alexey Kuzmenko

Physical review applied 16 4, 044012 (2021)

We present a very-compact bicomponent-permanent-magnet design capable of generating 1.25 T in a small volume, significantly above the 0.6 T available from a single uniformly magnetized permanent magnet. In addition to the enhanced maximum field, our design drastically limits the stray field present …
