Condensed Matter Seminar Series

Complexity in Transition Metal Oxides

Elbio Dagotto

U. Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Lab

Thursday January 20, 11:30 am, Room 234, Physics Building

Host: Harold Baranger

Abstract: The area of Strongly Correlated Electrons is one of the most active in condensed matter. A review of the main recent issues under discussion in the context of high temperature superconductors and colossal magnetoresistance manganites will be presented. Recent developments in the area of complexity in oxides will be addressed, with emphasis on the spontaneous formation of inhomogeneous states at the nanoscale.
