FP2 Interplay between frustration, interactions and spin-orbit coupling
This project is a follow-up project related to P7, P8, and P10. This new theory project will concern the interplay between geometrical lattice frustration, interactions and spin-orbit coupling of itinerant electrons, gaining inspiration from the rapid development of growth techniques in fabricating high quality slabs and interfaces of oxide materials, as well as the intriguing bulk physics of the pyrochlore iridates.
