Pressure and Strain Effects in Correlated Electron Materials

Exotic phenomena in correlated electron materials, such as unconventional superconductivity,
Mott transitions, non-Fermi-liquid behavior, and quantum criticality, often depend on a balance
of competing interactions that can be studied by tuning pressure and strain.

Topics include

- Fe-based superconductors, cuprates, other oxides, heterostructures
- Effect of pressure on Tc in unconventional superconductors
- Tuning competing orders with pressure and strain
- Effect of uniaxial strain on low-dimensional systems
- Frustrated Mott insulators
- Understanding mechanical vs. chemical pressure
- Ab initio theories of pressure effects in correlated systems
- Modeling pressure and strain effects
