MEETING
Physics and chemistry of emerging superconductors and thermoelectric materials

Data : September 13-15, 2017
Luogo: Aula Conversi, Department of Physics Sapienza University of Rome, Italy
Inizio 13 Settembre; ore 14:30
Fine 15 Settembre 18:30

Various metal oxides/chalcogenides/pnictides with structural instabilities exhibit interesting and useful transport properties including high temperature superconductivity and giant thermoelectric performance. In many cases, the structural instabilities are deeply related to strong fluctuations of valence state and local bond.
The meeting is aimed to discuss recent progress in physics and chemistry of such metal oxides/chalcogenides/pnictides with strong lattice and electronic fluctuations for future superconducting and thermoelectric systems. Experimental and theoretical issues will be presented and discussed. Apart from the growth techniques and characterizations of the new superconducting and thermoelectric materials, spectroscopic properties, studied in-house and at synchrotron radiation sources, will be one of the key themes.
