"Materials world under scrutiny: the view using a very powerful probe"


Despina Louca , University of Virginia
[Host: Joe Poon]
ABSTRACT:
The emergence of unique physical properties in solids is a manifestation of the coexistence and competition of several degrees of freedom. They are probed by neutrons which provide details on the structure and dynamics. Examples of systems that will be discussed include the magnetoresistive perovskite oxides, bulk metallic alloys, and the new class of superconductors. Understanding the macroscopic functionality of these systems can be potentially very useful for industrial applications.
