How Might a Fermi Surface Die?

Monday, April 1, 2013 at 4:00pm

Rockefeller Hall, Schwartz Auditorium Central Campus

Department of Physics Colloquium, Senthil Todadri, MIT. Refreshments at 3:30pm

Abstract:  In the last many years a number of metallic solids have been studied that defy understanding within the principles of conventional textbook solid state physics. The most famous are the cuprate high temperature superconductors though many other examples have been found. In this talk I  will argue that the mysterious properties of many such materials arises from an imminent `death' of their Fermi surfaces. I will discuss some theoretical ideas on how to kill a Fermi surface, and their implications for experiments.
