Abstract, Event Details: 

Quantum materials are crystalline solids with exotic physical properties arising from the quantum mechanical nature and interactions of electrons. Quantum phenomena such as fluctuations, topology, tunneling and interference are at the heart of exciting developments in the fundamental science of quantum materials. At the same time, these phenomena have the potential to play a key role in future technologies. In this colloquium I will give some examples from my research on magnetism, illustrating the discovery of novel phenomena in quantum materials, and the development of frameworks that can guide the search for new materials and devices with advanced functionality.
