Walther-Meißner-Institute for Low Temperature Research, Garching, Germany

The research program of Walther-Meißner-Institute for Low Temperature Research (WMI) is focused on fundamental and applied research in the field of low temperature solid-state physics with the main focus on superconductivity and superfluidity, magnetism and spin electronics, mesoscopic systems and nanotechnology, quantum information processing, as well as on the general properties of metallic systems at low and very low temperatures. It also conducts applied research into methods of generating and using low temperatures. With respect to materials the activities of WMI are focused on superconducting and magnetic materials, both in bulk and thin films.
