Condensed-Matter Physics & Materials Science Seminar

"Experiments on electron hydrodynamics with and without applied magnetic fields"

Presented by Andrew Mackenzie, Max-Planck-Institute, Germany

Wednesday, August 23, 2017, 1:30 pm — Bldg. 734, ISB Conf. Room 201 (upstairs)

Will discuss experiments aimed at probing signatures of viscous contributions to electrical transport in ultra pure metallic systems. The hydrodynamic regime was reached in semiconductor heterostructures in the 1990s, but has only recently come into reach in naturally occurring compounds. I will focus on our group's work on layered delafossite metals, but possibly also discuss results from other groups on different material families.
