Welcome to the webpage of the MEPS group led by Dario Bercioux. We are interested in the properties of the mesoscopic systems of electrons and photons and their mutual interaction.

We are based at the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) in the beautiful city of Donostia-San Sebastián located in the northern part of Spain. 

Our research is not supported by any Military Agency

A new manuscript by Miguel A., and Dario has been accepted for publication in Communications Physics. We have studied a two-dimensional wallpaper group lattice under several perturbations that can break the lattice symmetries. Specifically, we look at the herringbone lattice; we have shown that by playing with the onsite energies and the hopping dimerization, it is possible to tune the position of the lattice Dirac cone within the first Brillouin zone.

A new manuscript by Anastiasiia, Dario, and coauthors from San Sebastián has been uploaded to the repository. We have studied the formation of Yu-Shiba-Rusinov in a superconductor proximitized by a ferromagnetic insulator. You can read it HERE .

The first manuscript by Minh and Dario, coauthors from San Sebastian, Daejeon, and Lyon, has been uploaded to the repository. We study the topological properties of a synthetic photonic crystal platform. We have investigated semi-Dirac points and Fermi arc reconstruction. You can read it HERE .


Eusebio Jesus Rodríguez Fernández (University of Sevilla) will visit the group for one month. Eusebio will investigate spin dynamics in curved spaces. Welcome, Eusebio!


Carolina Martinez Strasser has joined the group as a graduate student; Carolina will investigate non-Hermitian physics in bosonic and fermionic systems. Welcome, Carolina!

A new manuscript by Dario and coauthors from San Sebastian and Sevilla has been uploaded to the repository. We study the transport and spectral properties of semiconducting rings in the presence of Rashba and Dresselhaus spin-orbit interactions. In the work we have used the quantum network technique we have for spin transport we developed a few years back. You can read it HERE .


Carolina Martinez Strasser defended successfully her master thesis, congratulations! She will start right away with a Ph.D. in our group working on the same topic.
