Synthesis and Physical Properties of Quantum Materials

TU Dresden | Sommersemester 2021 Synthesis and Physical Properties of Quantum Materials

This course will provide an overview of the synthesis and most common physical properties measurements on quantum materials, materials in which quantum mechanics is essential for understanding the low-temperature electronic/magnetic ground state.

This course will focus on the crystal growth and crystal chemical aspects of modern quantum materials (e.g. semiconductors, 2D materials, unconventional superconductors, topological materials). Topics will include: solid-state reactions, crystallization from the liquid and gas phases, and the structure and properties of perovskites, pyrochlores, and other materials of current interest. An overview will be provided of the most common physical properties used to characterize quantum materials. The relationships between the structure and the physical properties will be highlighted for each class of materials.

The topics and examples to be covered will be tailored to the interests of the students taking the course, and student participation is anticipated (e.g. short presentations on materials of interest to the student).

This course will provide an overview of the synthesis and most common physical properties measurements on quantum materials, materials in which quantum mechanics is crucial to understanding the ground state.  The course is intended to be responsive to the interests of the students, and some student participation is anticipated (e.g. short presentations on materials of interest to the student).  This course is offered in English.

Since the course covers a broad overview of both sample growth and measurement, no single book is recommended.  Review articles or books will be suggested for different parts of the course.
