Superconductivity of YbRh2Si2, a candidate topological superconductor
Prof J Saunders, Dr L Levitin
30 January 2019
YbRh2Si2 is a canonical heavy fermion metal with a field tuned quantum critical point. In recent work we have developed transport measurements on high quality single crystal samples which show it to be a superconductor below 10 mK.

Topological mesoscopic superfluidity of 3He
Prof J Saunders
31 January 2019
Superfluid 3He is one of the most exciting and rich condensed matter systems we know. Over the past thirty years its intellectual impact has been felt in areas as diverse as unconventional superconductivity, cosmology and turbulence.
Experimental Studies of Unconventional Superconductors
Dr M R Lees, Dr G Balakrishnan
15 February 2019
In conventional superconductors the supercurrents are carried by s-wave Cooper pairs. In unconventional superconductors, the pair wave function may be an odd-parity spin-triplet, or perhaps some mixture of even and odd parity.
