Topics in quantum matter research
If you have a question about this talk, please contact smw14.
Exploring quantum matter, or systems in which quantum statistics apply because high energy modes are frozen out, has a long history in the Cavendish. Electron liquids in metals or correlated insulators combine high carrier density with low carrier mass to produce degeneracy energies well above room temperature in many cases, opening up routes to practical applications or devices. The seminar will review selected research themes, including (i) novel electronic order such as unconventional superconductivity and unusual forms of magnetic, charge or orbital order, (ii) breakdown of the standard single-particle description of electrons in solids, (iii) advances in experimental methods in high magnetic fields, low temperatures and high pressures.
