MAGNETic & OPTICal properties of ferroic and strongly correlated materials

Some materials showing fascinating properties such as superconductivity, colossal magnetoresistance, metal-insulator transition, multiferroicity ..., are the building blocks of novel applications in microelectronics, energy conversion and harvesting. These properties are basically due to strong electronic correlations, and result in a competition between various degrees of freedom (charges, lattice, spin, orbitals, …).
The team aims to understand the microscopic mechanisms at the origin of the physical properties of these materials such as multiferroïcity, magnetic order and dynamics, ...
Our approach is based on a combination of Raman and optical spectroscopies, magnetic measurements and numerical simulations.
The teams aims to understand the quantic mechanisms behind the physical behaviour of materials such as multiferroïc compounds, Motts insulators etc.

MAGNETOPTICS team focuses on two research operations:

Electronic properties of materials with strong electronic correlations: spectroscopy and ab-initio calculations

image magnetoptics vignette teamsCompounds with strong electronic correlations have many functional properties. Understanding the mechanisms underlying these properties will help develop materials adapted to the function of  R-RAMs, flexible electronics, neural networks, sensors, energy storage…
