Thesis Defense in PAN 110
Speaker: Yuriy Sizyuk, University of Minnesota
Subject:  4d and 5d compounds as the new frontier of the anisotropic spin physics
This is the public portion of Mr. Sizyuk's thesis defense. His advisor is Natalia Perkins.

My talk will be on the strong spin-orbit coupling as a source of heavily anisotropic magnetic Hamiltonians in 4d and 5d compounds, most notably iridates and RuCl3. I will discuss the derivation of the anisotropic Hamiltonians from microscopic parameters, and the competition and cooperation of different interactions that lead to the complex magnetic states in iridates and RuCl3.
