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 Sebastián, located in the northern part of Spain. 

Our research is not supported by any Military Agency

News and events

Our recent review on “Synthetic quantum matter in non-standard geometries” is finally on the arXiv. It was a great collaboration with several brilliant scientists!
Today, Iker Valle started his summer internship in the group. He will investigate about non-Hermitian lattice physics implementation with electric circuits. Welcome Iker!
We have a new manuscript in the arXiv (11.03.2024), on a proposal for implementing dice lattice in the electron quantum simulator with CO molecules on Cu(111). The manuscript has been accepted for publication in Advanced Physics Research. KUDOS to the team!
We have a new doctor, today (07.03.2024) Miguel Angel Jimenez Herrera brilliantly defended his PhD thesis. Congratulations Dr. Herrera!
Ngọc Đức Lê joined the group as a postdoctoral fellow. He will investigate on topological phases in photonic systems with synthetic momenta. Welcome Đức!
We are organising and exciting event next summer in Donostia-San Sebastián about Synthetic Electronic Quantum Matter, join us by registering here.
The manuscript by Carolina, Miguel A., and Dario has been published in Advanced Quantum Technology. Congratulations for this amazing international collaboration! We are on the Cover.
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!
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 group 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!
