LASSP and A&EP SEMINAR

Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at 12:20pm to 1:45pm

Clark Hall, 700
Central Campus

Professor Kyle Shen, Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics, Cornell University, will present seminar. Professor Carl Franck, host.

Seminar Title: Shedding Light on Quantum Materials

Abstract: Quantum materials host a vast array of emergent electronic phenomena, including high-temperature superconductivity, colossal magnetoresistance, and nanoscale charge / spin ordering. One of the grand challenges of this field is to develop an understanding of how strong quantum many-body interactions can influence the electronic structure of these materials, with the ultimate goal of someday controlling or enhancing these properties. I will describe how we use angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES), a powerful technique for directly measuring the electronic structure and quantum many-body interactions, to reveal new insights into quantum materials         such as unconventional superconductors. I will focus particularly on our development of new capabilities which integrate ARPES and molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) synthesis. This combination allows us, for the first time, to create, observe, and even manipulate electronic states which emerge at artificially synthesized, atomically precise interfaces and heterostructures of quantum materials.
