Lecture ‘The Importance of Synthesis and Single-Crystal Quality for Understanding High-Temperature Superconductivity in Cuprates’
Professor Neven Barišić, one of the leading European researchers and scholars, will give a lecture titled The Importance of Synthesis and Single-Crystal Quality for Understanding High-Temperature Superconductivity in Cuprates at the SASA Grand Hall, on Thursday, 1 February, at noon.
Neven Barišić, PhD, is a full professor at the Faculty of Science of the University of Zagreb and an associate professor at the Vienna University of Technology. He received his doctorate from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne in 2005. The focus of his scientific work is the research of new electronic materials which are of great scientific significance and which also have many possibilities for technological applications. The research he conducted in this field in the most renowned world laboratories puts him among the most notable authorities in the field of high-temperature superconductivity phenomenon.
As the lecture abstract states, superconductivity is a property expressed by some materials which enables the flow of electricity without dissipation. Understanding this phenomenon has great technological potential. Therefore, it is not surprising that high-temperature cuprates are among the most extensively researched correlated materials. However, answers to basic questions about their main phases and regimes, as well as the transitions among them, are pending. This lecture aims to shed some light on the physics of these fascinating compounds.
