Computational and experimental studies of exotic magnets and superconductors

Abstract:

The advent of metalworking during the bronze age marked a transition in humankind’s relationship with materials: instead of materials existing only as they were found in nature, one could now manipulate their physical properties to make them fit for purpose. With the discovery of quantum mechanics, the new opportunities to manipulate materials were manifold. The collective behaviour of electrons inside a solid is much more than the sum of its parts; as such, in some bulk materials, new qua...
