11 June 2009 FWN-Building 5111.0080, Nijenborgh 4, 9747 AG, Groningen
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Yoshi Tokura
Affiliation: Dept. of Applied Physics, University of Tokyo, Japan
Title: Emergent magneto-electronic phenomena in correlated-electron materials
Date: Thu Jun 11, 2009
Start: 16.00 (Doors open and coffee available at 15.30)
Location: FWN-Building 5111.0080


Towards the invention of new functional electronic materials with high efficiency and low energy consumption, the emergence in materials science is the key concept, which focuses on the strong space-time correlations of interacting degrees of freedom. The correlated electron materials occasionally undergo a transition between the critically competing electronic phases. Such a phase competition produces surprising emergent phenomena, such as high-temperature superconductivity, colossal magneto-resistance, and Mott transitions. Here, I would overview the strategic exploration for gigantic magneto-electronic responses of a collective state of matter against minimal external stimuli.
