Physics Colloquium: Adventures in Crystal Growth: Targeted Rare Earth Intermetallics with Synergistic Magnetic and Electrical Properties
Wednesday, Jan 21, 2015
4:15 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Location: SLC 1.102

Dr. Julia Chan (UT Dallas)

The discovery and characterization of novel intermetallic compounds is important for broadening the understanding of structure-property relationships of functional materials. Our current research areas in superconductivity, unusual magnetism, thermoelectrics, and magnetocalorics, rely heavily on the intimate relationship between structure and physical properties. Likewise, the determination of anisotropic physical properties from high quality single crystals is vital in probing the intrinsic electrical and the competing magnetic interactions to understand the chemistry and physics of these materials. In this seminar, I will highlight the crystal growth, characterization, and properties of targeted rare earth intermetallics discovered in our laboratory.
