Heterostructures and Interfaces

Materials, such as transition metal oxides, that host strongly correlated electron liquids exhibit an impressive array of scientifically interesting and potentially important electronic behaviors, including magnetic, superconducting, and topologically ordered ground states, as well as novel transport properties and a high degree of tunability via metal-insulator and other phase transitions. The remarkable range of behaviors challenges our physical understanding and our computational techniques. We are developing and applying state of the art methods to understand topics ranging from the nuclear magnetic resonance spectra of high transition temperature superconductors to the behavior of electrons confined to atomically thin layers at interfaces between different transition metal oxide compounds.
