Multiscale simulations of atomically-thin superconducting electronics.

Superconducting electronic devices are readily important for a variety of applications ranging from very sensitive detectors to communication devices. The increasing technological progress of the recent years brought with itself a pertinent quest for the miniaturization of such electronic devices – down to the ultimate realization of superconductivity in the two-dimensional (2D) limit, in the so-called 2D materials. When reduced to this size, superconducting materials experience effects of quantum confinement, which leads to unique properties unattainable in their bulk form. Due to such special properties, high versatility, and tunability (by e.g. strain or gating), the atomically-thin superconductors are candidates for a new generation of superconducting electronic devices, more efficient and energetically cheaper than the currently existing ones. The goal of the present doctorate is to perform a multiscale study of atomically-thin superconducting devices. To do so, we use the available results of atomistic ab initio calculations on the microscopic material parameters to further parametrize the Ginzburg-Landau simulations of the nanoengineered superconducting circuitry, to reveal and promote the unique features of atomically-thin superconductors and the pathways to tailor the desired properties of the selected electronic devices.
