New paper: “Universal scaling of the critical temperature for thin films near the superconducting-to-insulating transition” accepted to Phys. Rev. B

[preprint] [supp. info.] We reported that the superconducting properties scale universally close to the superconducting-to-insulating transition in thin films. This universal behavior was found useful not only for the fundamental understanding of superconductivity near its onset, but also for miniaturized superconducting devices, such as superconducting-nanowire single-photon detectors.

MIT News highlighted this article in December 2014.
