Mesoscopic magnetism and superconductivity

Featuring in the November issue of the MRS Bulletin. I have coauthored this review with colleagues from the University of California-San Diego and from Argonne National Labs (see their bio here).

S088376941500264X_figAbThe special issue is devoted to “Mesoscale Materials, Phenomena, and Functionality“. Our review, focusses on superconductivity and magnetism at intermediate (“mesoscopic”) length scales between atomic and bulk. We discuss new phenomena that appear due to topological interactions, geometric confinement, proximity between dissimilar materials, dimensional crossover, and collective effects. We select a few, recent highlights that illustrate the type of novel science that can be accomplished in superconducting and magnetic structures. We also highlight general open questions and new directions in which the field may move.
