International Focus Workshop on Photoemission and Electronic Structure of 4f and 5f Systems
The f-ARPES Workshop is designed as a tool to present the current state of affairs and facilitate discussion focused on the electronic structure of f-electron systems. In particular the workshop will enable discussion of data and theory in the following areas: (i) novel results of direct measurements of electronic structure with multitude of X-ray and photoelectron spectroscopies: XPS, PES, ARPES, tr-ARPES, RIXS and (ii) new calculations of the electronic structure of correlated f-electron systems.
Measurement and calculation of the electronic structure of correlated electron systems provides direct access to understanding physical properties of those materials. The f-electron systems are of special interest, due to applications in energy generation, weapons, and many areas of industry, but also because of their unique tunability and abundance of peculiar, often not well understood, states. This is why the 4f and 5f correlated electron systems provide a useful testbed for investigating and understanding the ground states of major interest in all correlated systems, like heavy-fermion state, superconductivity or Mott state. With several novel findings becoming recently available in both theory and experiment, we will focus on a particularly interesting selection of the f-electron physics during the f-ARPES workshop.
