Add to Calendar 5/2/2018 4:00 pm 5/2/2018 America/Chicago Physics Colloquium: Slichter Colloquium - "The Rise and Fall of the Fermi Liquid: The Strange Metal Near a Quantum Critical Point" DESCRIPTION:

The Fermi liquid is the canonical picture with which we understand all conventional metals. In strongly correlated systems a novel kind of 'strange' metal emerges, the physics of which is at the core of some the most important problems in condensed matter physics, from high temperature superconductivity to the fractional quantum Hall effect. We study the physics of the strange metal in extreme magnetic fields, finding unusual behavior which hints that a deeper, universal physics is at play.
