Modern superconducting materials of interest tend to exhibit a complex interplay of many-body ordering tendencies. This requires an understanding of the ensuing multicomponent field theories, their microscopic origins and macroscopic responses.

This program will bring together experimentalists, experts working on macroscopic properties and experts working on the underlying microscopic physics that leads to these complex states. The goal will be to achieve an in depth understanding of important physical properties including magnetic response, transport and thermoelectric properties, nature of topological excitations, and fluctuation-induced phases. This will be achieved through an emphasis on the following material systems: twisted bilayer graphene; iron-based superconductors; unconventional superconductivity in Sr2RuO4; UTe2 and related ferromagnetic superconductors; Bi2Se3 based nematic superconductors; j=3/2 superconductors; and novel 2D superconductors

Topics:
  • Topological superconducting phases
  • Broken time-reversal superconductors
  • Superconductivity with competing orders
  • Topological Majorana edge states
  • Novel superconducting gap structures
  • Superconductivity from correlated electrons
