Strongly Correlated Systems

Strongly correlated electron systems belong to the most intriguing and versatile materials. In these systems, competing interactions in charge, spin, orbital, and lattice degrees of freedom lead to the emergence of a multitude of exotic states, including unconventional superconductivity and magnetism, valence fluctuations, heavy fermions, phases with charge stripes or a pseudogap. At UCLan, we are interested in how subtle changes in material composition, pressure or magnetic field may tip the balance between the competing tendencies, resulting in complex phase diagrams.
