Seminar: “Spin-Orbit Coupling in Mott Insulators: Unusual Interactions and Possible Exotic Phases”

Speaker: Dr. George Jackeli, Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Germany


Over the last few years, there has been an upsurge of interest in materials in which exotic states may emerge as the result of relativistic spin-orbit interactions. We will discuss insulating iridium oxides from this perspective.
