1. Novel Josephson effect in superconducting nanostructures
Prediction of a novel class of Josephson effects in Triplet-superconductor – Ferromagnet – Triplet-superconductor (TFT) junctions, in particular: prediction of
(a) a spin Josephson effect without global phase difference,
(b) existence of a macroscopic spin current, and
(c) realization of a superconducting qubit.
Furthermore, investigation of 0-p transitions (switching properties) as well as realization of new functional interfaces.

2. Response and transport in unconventional superconductors
Derivation of the electronic Raman response function for metals with anisotropic relaxation rates and generalization of the Lindhard function due to collision effects. Further generalization to the pair-breaking Raman effect in non-centrosymmetric superconductors revealing simultaneously singlet- and triplet-pairing due to strong anisotropic spin-orbit coupling. Formulation and classification of transport equations for generalized external perturbations resulting in characteristic response functions, respectively.

3. Elementary excitations in high-Tc superconductors
Calculation and analysis of self-energy effects in high-Tc cuprates, in particular comparing with experiments concerning the 'kink' (observed by ARPES) and 'resonance peak' (measured by INS experiments) and their anisotropy in momentum space (Raman scattering). Formulation of a microscopic theory for Cooper-pairing due to spin fluctuations yielding a superconducting dx2-y2-wave order parameter. Contrasting these results with LDA-based calculations for the phonon-induced (a) self-energy effects and (b) pairing interaction. Analysis of the in-plane anisotropy in connection with an s-wave admixture to the superconducting gap.
