Symposium QT06-Quantum Phenomena in Oxides—Synthesis, Characterization and Automation

In strongly correlated electron systems, intimate coupling between spin, charge, and lattice degrees of freedom are governed by quantum mechanical effects and can provide pathways to new applications and translational innovations. The synergy between synthesis, characterization, and theory is critical to advance the discovery of new materials and properties, such as ferroelectricity, magnetism, and unconventional superconductivity.

Precise synthesis techniques, remote epitaxy, and topotactic transformation will pave the way for the tailored fabrication of oxide-based quantum materials. Moreover, atomic scale heterogeneity in the form of abrupt interfaces and defects can give rise to unique functionalities in bulk crystals or epitaxially designed heterostructures. State-of-art characterization tools will enable spatial- and time-resolved imaging and spectroscopy, elucidating structure-property relationships, emergent interface effects, and nanoscale/mesoscale order/disorder of spins and polarization. Computational methods lie at the forefront to predict the origin of the structure-property interactions and bridge the gap between synthesis and characterization.

The symposium proposed here will focus on a wide range of oxide-based quantum materials. Abstracts will be solicited from (but not limited to) experimental or theoretical studies of correlated phenomena, new states of matter, manipulation of spin and polar order, and more in bulk or thin film oxide materials. Studies on novel characterization methods and/or synthesis techniques are welcome, including those based on machine learning-assisted synthesis methods, characterization techniques, and data processing.

Topics will include:

  • Unconventional superconductivity in oxides
  • Magnetism, ferroelectrics, and relaxors
  • Remote epitaxy, freestanding oxides, and topotactic transformation
  • X-ray and electron diffraction and imaging characterization techniques
  • Computational methods for understanding and exploring oxide materials
  • Single crystal and thin film synthesis
  • Machine learning methods and automation for synthesis and characterization
