Quantum Materials Seminar

Wednesday, March 1st 2017
11:00 am:
Speaker: Maria Navarro Gastiasoro, UMN
Subject: Emergent disorder phenomena in correlated Fe-based superconductors
Note change of time and day for the seminar.

The fundamental pairing mechanism causing high-T superconductivity in Fe-based superconductors remains controversial. Superconductivity is only one of several phases exhibited by these materials, and it is widely believed that the mechanism responsible for pairing may be closely linked to the existence of other proximate ordered phases. Most of these materials are obtained by chemical doping, which besides extra carriers, introduces disorder in the system. Therefore, understanding the role of these impurities is crucial and it has been a main focus of our work.
