Title: Spectroscopy of correlated electrons: techniques, insights, perspectives
Date: Thu Oct 13, 2005
Start: 16.00 (Doors open and coffee available at 15.30)
Location: FWN-Building 5111.0080


Research on complex materials with strongly correlated electrons is currently at a stage of extraordinarily rapid development. Spectroscopic techniques yield unprecedented insights into the microscopic mechanisms underlying the unusual macroscopic phenomena observed in correlated-electron materials, such as unconventional superconductivity in copper oxides and related compounds. At the same time, heterostructures and superlattices of such materials can now be synthesized with atomic-scale precision. In analogy to the situation of semiconductor physics in the early 1970’s, this opens the door to a large variety of novel phenomena of both fundamental and technological interest. This lecture will give an overview of recent developments at the frontier of this field.
