Transition Metal Oxides, Superconductivity and Interfaces

Transition Metal Oxides, Superconductivity and Interfaces

 
From the discovery of high temperature superconductivity in cuprates in 1986 to the more recent observation of a 2-dimensional electron gas at the interface between two insulating transition metal oxides (TMOs) such as SrTiO3 and LaAlO3, interest in unusual properties in TMOs and at their interfaces has been growing continuously. The present workshop will focus on TMOs, their heterostructures and interfaces as well as on novel findings in cuprates, iron-based superconductors, multiferroics and iridates, to address issues such as material growth and preparation, structural and electronic property characterisation as well as theoretical modelling and understanding.
