Spectroscopic studies of layered iridium oxides

Friday, April 15, 2016
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: East Bridge 114

Abstract: The spin-orbit driven Mott insulator groundstate of some layered Iridates has been proposed as analogous to that of the cuprates and as such, a potential platform for engineering high-temperature superconductivity with carrier doping. In this talk I will discuss what we learned, and what remains to be answered, from our spectroscopic studies (ARPES, STM, RIXS) on the interplay between spin-orbit and electron-electron correlations in La (electron) doped single crystals of Sr2IrO4 and Sr3Ir2O7.
