Who I am: I am student in Physics of Complex Systems at Politecnico di Torino and at Université Paris Sud. I am also a student of Alta Scuola Politecnica.
Research: The purpose of my project is to realize superconducting Nb3Sn thin films through electro-deposition processes onto a Nb substrate followed by heat treatments. SEM and EDX analysis are performed in order to characterize the cross section of the samples during the fabrication. The phase diagram critical current vs magnetic field of the samples is eventually measured. Optimizations of the process are made in order to improve the superconducting properties of the samples.
