2018 Application: High Temperature Superconductivity - Unifying Themes in Diverse Materials
Sunday, January 14th through Saturday, January 20th, 2018
Email address *
Application Deadline: 10/31/17
Conference Description:
Iron-based superconductivity has been at the center of condensed matter physics for nearly a decade. Recent developments in the study of the iron chalcogenides have renewed hope of reaching even higher transition temperatures for superconductivity. Meanwhile, considerable progress has been made on the understanding of their microscopic physics. Over the same period, the study of the venerable copper-based superconductors has undergone a drastic resurgence, due to a flurry of experimental discoveries and new theoretical understandings on the electronic orders in the pseudogap regime.

This Aspen Winter Conference will highlight the aforementioned developments, and showcase the unifying themes that are emerging from studying a diverse set of materials. While the focus will be on the iron- and copper-based systems, the conference will also feature the deepening understanding on quantum criticality in heavy fermion and organic superconductors, physics of spin liquids, as well as superconductivity above 200 K that has been reported under extreme pressure during the past two years.
