Project managers

Superconducting Metamaterials Lab 

Prof. Alexey V.Ustinov, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany

Project target

To create linear and nonlinear as well as bifurcational and parametrical metamaterials, configurable sinistral transfer lines, ultra-compact resonator, utilizing huge kinetic inductance of hybrid metamaterials.

Project objectives

Research of physical features of superconducting metamaterials: electromagnetic structure based artificial materials

Uniqueness project

This new advanced scientific research of superconducting metamaterials started a few years ago and is now booming. Presently we can state that the research direction chosen for the new NUST MISiS lab stands at the forefront of scientific progress of both metamaterials in general and superconducting electronics in particular. We concentrate on electromagnetic materials with ultra-low loss composed of superconducting circuits. Our priorities in the nearest future will be creating new devices for space research, communications and sensor technologies.


Superconducting Metamaterials Lab possesses modern technological and experimental equipment. 

First of all it is technological zone, thermostatic coolers and microwave equipment. 
Our two closed cycle thermostatic coolers were put into operation in 2012. Microwave equipment was installed in late 2012 and technological zone started operation in 2013. 
Please see in Attachment 1 the list of equipment used in Superconducting Metamaterials Lab.
