NANOSCALE COHERENT HYBRID DEVICES FOR SUPERCONDUCTING QUANTUM TECHNOLOGIES
Program: COST
Project leader: prof. RNDr. Samuely Peter DrSc., akademik US Slovenska
Annotation:Superconducting technologies are prime candidates to ripen quantum effects into devices and applications. The accumulated knowledge in decades of work in understanding superconductivity allows scientists now to make experiments by design, controlling relevant parameters in devices. A new field is emerging whose final objective is to improve appliances taking advantage of quantum effects, be it for dissipationless transport of current, generation of high magnetic fields, sensors or quantum information. The field will impact crucial areas for societal development, including energy, transport, medicine or computation. Quantum behavior is controlled by using hybrids of superconductors with magnets, insulators, semiconductors or normal metals. Traditionally, the scientific and technical communities working in superconductivity are spread across projects from different calls, whose activities put Europe at the frontier of research. The present Action aims to address the pressing need for a common place to share knowledge and infrastructure and develop new cooperative projects.To this end, we have set-up a program including networking activities with an open, proactive and inclusive approach to other researchers and industry. We will develop the concept of a Virtual Institute to improve availability of infrastructure and knowledge, and focus on contributing to gender balance and the participation of young researchers. The proposal aims to avoid duplication of resources and skills in a subject traditionally dominated by small groups working independently. This will optimize European efforts in this area and uncover our full potential, thus maintaining and developing Europe’s leading position in superconducting quantum technologies.

Annotation:Cancer is the second leading cause of death after cardiovascular disease in almost all European countries. Over the past several decades, the principle types of cancer therapies have been chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery. This project is focused on the development of biocompatible multifunctional magnetic nanoparticles and evaluation of their diagnostic and therapeutic potential for the application in oncology. The first step to achieve the desired goals will be the synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles and the functionalization of their surface with a suitable biocompatible materials suitable for radiotracer binding. Several physicochemical methods will be used to optimize the preparation of biocompatible multifunctional magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs). At the same time, we will study the suitability of multifunctional magnetic nanoparticles for magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic hyperthermia application as well. Considering the application purposes of biocompatible multifunctional magnetic nanoparticles, biodistribution studies of radiotracer conjugated MNPs will be conducted. The prepared radiotracer conjugated MNPs will improve the efficacy of cancer diagnosis and treatment. Moreover, combination of MRI, hyperthermia and radiotherapy represents a significant advance in cancer diseases treatment and a substantial improvement in survival of oncological patients. The project is based on a complex multidisciplinary approach,ranging from physics, chemistry up to biochemistry and biomedicine. The involved partners possess key skills, infrastructure and are highly motivated to reach the project goals.

Annotation:The proposed project represents a continuation of our previous collaboration, which we started in the framework of our common APVV SK-Hu-2013-0039 project „Elaboration and characterization of graphene layers with controlled nanoscale rippling” in 2015. In this project, we have studied the physical properties of tin/graphene hybrid nanostructures applying low temperature STM microscopy and spectroscopy. We have shown, that the graphene cover layer acts as a passivating layer and protects the tin nanoparticles from oxidation. Our low temperature STM results prove that superconductivity is induced in grapheme both, when directly directly supported by tin nanoparticles or suspended among them. These results have been published in our common paper in a prestigious journal Carbon [A. Pálinkás, et al., Carbon 124 (2017) 611-617].
