The Dark Energy of Quantum Materials — •Laura H Greene — National MagLab and Florida State University
The nearly 80-year-old correlated electron problems remain largely unsolved; with one (of two) stunning success being BCS electron-phonon mediated conventional superconductivity. There are dozens of families of superconductors that are unconventional including the high-Tc cuprates, iron-based, and heavy fermions. Although these materials are disparate in many properties, some of their fundamental properties are strikingly similar, including their ubiquitous phase diagram; with intriguing correlated-electron phases above the superconducting transition. These remain among the greatest unsolved problems in physics, today; and a fun analogy stressing this will be presented. I will start with a short introduction to the MagLab.
