MEPS group

Welcome to the webpage of the MEPS group led by Dario Bercioux. In our group, 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 Sebasti├ín, located in the northern part of Spain. 

Our research is not supported by any Military Agency

News and events

Victor Sierka has joined the group as a graduate students. His project will be in collaboration with Dr. Alexey Nikitin (DIPC) and will be about electron and photon focusing in quantum materials. Welcome Victor!
The manuscript by Carolina, Miguel A., and Dario has been accepted for piblication in Advanced Quantum Technology. Congratulations for this amazing international collaboration!
We announce the next Capri Spring School; the topic will be “Non-unitary many-body quantum dynamics“. Registrations are now open.
Oussama Er-Riyahi has joined the group as a graduate students. His project will be in collaboration with Dr. Karolina Milowska (nanoGune) and will be about two-dimensional materials heterostructures. Welcome Oussama!
Regine Frank has joined the group as an associate member. Welcome Regine!
A manuscript by Dario, in collaboration with Diego Frustaglia (University of Sevilla) and Alessandro De Martino (City, University of London) has been published in Physical Review B. Congratulations to all of us!
We are organizing a small workshop at the Lorentz Center in Leiden. The topic is “Opportunities from local noise spectroscopy“. If you re interested in participating, send an email to one of the organizers.
A new manuscript by Carolina, Miguel A., and Dario has been posted to the arXiv. It is about the topological properties of two non-Hermitian quasi-one-dimensional chains with a flat band. We have found a new type of skin effect in a lattice system with an energy spectrum that is purely real or imaginary in the complex energy plain. You can read it here.
The manuscript by Dario, Alberto Hijano, and collaborators from Sevilla has been accepted for publication in Communications Physics. Congratulations to all of us!
A new grant (PIBA) from the Basque Country Government was accepted in collaboration with Alexey Nikitin and Paco Guinea. Congratulations to all of the people involved! The research topic will be “Design of quantum materials for channeling light and electrons”.
The manuscript by Minh and Dario on photonic synthetic dimensions has been published in Physical Review Letters. Congratulations to all of us!
