01.06.2020 – CRC TRR288 Elastoqmat funded by the DFG

The DFG has funded the CRC TRR288 ELASTO-Q-MAT initiative. It involves the JGU (Sinova co-speaker), Goethe University Frankfurt (Roser Valenti as coordinator and speaker), the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Joerg Schmalian co-speaker), and the Max Plank Institutes in Mainz and Dresden. This initiative has the goal to understand, advance, and exploit new physical phenomena emerging from a particularly strong coupling between a material's elasticity and its electronic quantum phases. To this end, we will study the effects of elastic tuning and elastic response of various types of electronic order in representative classes of quantum materials that share a high sensitivity to intrinsic strain or externally applied stress fields
