Originating Calendar
Physics - Condensed Matter Seminar

Quantum materials containing lanthanide or actinide elements are fascinating because their f electrons may interact with the sea of conduction electrons and give rise to novel emergent phenomena. In addition, the combination of strong electronic correlations and non-trivial topology presents a powerful paradigm with the possibility of unprecedented experimental realizations. In this talk, I will present new experimental insights into novel strongly correlated materials ranging from topological superconductor candidate UTe2 to narrow-gap semiconductors, such as SmB6 and Eu5In2Sb6. At the end of the talk, I will highlight some of the most pressing outstanding open questions
