Ke Zou: Recent progress on understanding the superconductivity of bulk and monolayer FeSe

March 3, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm

Meeting ID: 684 7017 3961
Passcode: 113399

Speaker: Ke Zou, Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute


The physics of high-temperature superconductors is usually governed by the interplay of the spin and charge degrees of freedom. FeSe has the simplest chemical composition among Fe-based superconductors, yet monolayer FeSe on SrTiO3 substrate reports one of the highest superconducting transition temperatures. I will summarize the progress on understanding its superconductivity from my group and other groups in the recent couple of years. We will discuss the specific roles of charge transfer, spin magnetic moment, and phonon coupling in this system.
