High-temperature superconductivity: new insights and perspectives
Prof. Dr. Bernhard Keimer (Max-Planck-Institut für Festkörperforschung, Stuttgart)
Three decades years after the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity, experimental advances yield surprising new insights. Beginning with an elementary introduction to superconductivity, this colloquium will outline our current understanding of this phenomenon. We will then discuss the latest developments, with a focus on electronic collective modes detected by high-resolution neutron and x-ray spectroscopies, and on the discovery of charge order and its interplay with superconductivity. We will also discuss perspectives for controlled manipulation of high-temperature superconductors and other correlated-electron materials at interfaces and in electronic devices.
