"Nernst effect: from simple to correlated metals"
ABSTRACT:
Since the discovery of large Nernst effect in the pseudogap of hole-doped cuprates this transport coefficient is becoming a new tool with which to probe correlated electronic behavior. I will first survey the recent experimental data on materials as varied as superconductors, charge and spin density waves, heavy Fermi liquids and ferromagnets. In some cases I will suggest possible common origins of such behavior and support them with calculations.
