Les Houches – WE Heraeus workshop
Fermi surface and novel phases
in strongly correlated electrons systems 


Exploring, understanding, and describing materials with strong electronic Coulomb correlations remain among the big challenges of modern condensed-matter physics. Well-known examples of such systems are transition metal oxides, metals containing lanthanide or actinide atoms and organic conductors. At low temperatures, these materials exhibit novel phenomena like metal-to-insulator transitions, heavy fermions, unconventional superconductivity, unusual magnetism, stripe and nematic orders as well as pronounced deviations from the typical universal metallic behavior.

The study of these highly anomalous properties and exotic phases are an important topic of research in high magnetic fields.

The aim of the school is to deepen the understanding of the physics of correlated electron materials. The lectures will address materials growth, measurement, theory, computation, and general understanding. We attempt at a comprehensive overview of the fundamental ideas, current status, recent developments and perspective future directions in the field.

This school is addressed to graduate students and young researchers in the field of correlated-electron materials. The participants will be selected according to their scientific qualification and their previous knowledge.

The school registration fees include lectures, meals and accommodation in single rooms (few double rooms for couples are available).
