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

A new manuscript by Miguel A., and Dario has been uploaded to the repository. We study a two-dimensional wallpaper group lattice. Specifically, we look at the herringbone lattice, we show 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.

The new manuscript by Miguel A., Maria and Dario has been published in the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. We study the electromagnetic energy density in the real space of a photonic crystal. We correlate with the position of the maximally localized Wannier functions so as predicted by topological quantum chemistry — a great collaboration with colleagues from the University of Lisbon, Purdue University, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

We have a new manuscript by Miguel A., Maria and Dario accepted for publication in Physical Review B. The work presents an in-depth analysis of the properties of the breathing kagome lattice. We show that the system is not a higher-order topological insulator — a great collaboration with colleagues from Utrecht University. You can read it HERE .
