Agenda Day 2

Session III: Vortex physics and electronic structure

9:30-10:15 Enrico Silva (U. Roma Tre): What can we learn from pinning and dissipation of superconducting nanocomposite films with microwaves

10:15-11:00 Guy Deutscher : Lattice strain effects on pair condensation and vortex pinning

11:00-11:30 Coffee break

11:30 General Discussion:

  • Are the pinning centers of high temperature effective at low temperature?
  • What determines de irreversibility line?
  • What similarities can be gathered between CSD and PLD regarding vortex pinning?
  • Do we have isotropic strain in PLD nanocomposites at low temperature like in CSD?
  • What are the consequences of strain in the electronic density of state?
  • How can we measure the consequences of strain on the DOS or quasiparticles behavior?
  • Can microwave measurements answer some questions regarding the quasiparticles nature in strained regions?

13:00 Lunch

15:00 Discussion and future collaboration initiatives

17:00 Closing of the workshop
