The 9th CROSSroads Workshop
Superconductivity, Magnetism and Frustration
3-5 December 2013
Room 116, KEK Tokai campus, Tokai, Japan
At the microscopic level, simple electron-lattice interactions cannot adequately explain the origin of superconductivity. Rather, for strongly-correlated electron systems in particular, a correct description of the overall electronic behaviour is required in order to fully understand the mechanism by which superconductivity arises. Research aimed at making such a description has been instrumental in shaping the fundamental understanding of fluctuations in electronic systems and opening up new directions in research. For these reasons, though a full century has passed since the discovery of superconductivity, it remains even today an active area of research and a rich source of new avenues of inquiry. Including presentations describing the current status of superconductivity research, this workshop aims to promote discussion on emerging research themes and future developments in the field.
The scope of the workshop is, however, not limited to superconductivity but extends also to the closely related fields of strongly-correlated electron systems and magnetic materials. With specific focus on quantum phenomena, the frustration effect and multiferroics, the workshop aims to showcase not only the present status of research in these areas but also to provide an outlook to the future development and potential application of these characteristic properties.
