Elastic Tuning and Response of Electronic Quantum Phases of Matter (CRC/TRR 288)
The ELASTO-Q-MAT initiative (Frankfurt - Karlsruhe - Mainz), embodied by the new CRC/TRR 288, 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.
