The 52nd edition of the Ecole de Gif will focus on "Beyond the Standard Model of Cosmology".
This edition is organized in Marseille by the IPhU laboratories (CPPM, CPT and LAM) on 13-17 September
At the interface between a normal metal and a superconductor, an incoming electron can be transmitted in the superconductor as two electrons forming a Cooper pair, while a hole is reflected back in the normal metal. This is known as Andreev reflection. Researchers from the Nanophysics team of the CPT (CNRS-AMU), in collaboration with an experimental team at NTT Research Labs (Atsugi - Japan), have demonstrated that a similar behavior can be observed for fractional quasiparticles existing in the Quantum Hall effect in 2d electronic gas. This study is an important step towards the understanding and the manipulation of these fractional quasiparticles.
