Short bio

Mariana's research focuses on the study of nonequilibrium superconductivity in organic compounds with ultrafast transport techniques. Currently, she is developing microstructured devices on chip which integrate a coplanar stripline with an alkali-doped fulleride K3C60 thin film. With this technique, she can study the transport properties of the nonequilibrium superconducting state upon optical excitation in the mid infrared.
