dc.descriptionGang Cao is a Professor of Physics at the University of Colorado Boulder. His research is driven by two interconnected thrusts — Discovery of New Quantum Materials and Control of Novel Quantum States. It encompasses a methodical search for new quantum materials, especially new 4d- and 5d-electron based materials, and a systematic effort to elucidate and control novel quantum states in these materials.en_US

dc.description.abstractEffects of spin-orbit interactions in condensed matter are an important and rapidly evolving topic. A sea change occurred with the discovery of spin-orbit interactions in graphene by Mele and Kane, which has led to the exciting new field of physics addressing a rare interplay between spin-orbit and Coulomb interactions in condensed matter. I will describe an entirely new hierarchy of energy scales inherent in 4d- and 5d-electron based oxides and its unique consequences, highlighting discrepancies between experimental confirmation and theoretical proposals that address superconducting, topological and quantum spin liquid phases in iridates. I will then present our recent discoveries of novel quantum phenomena in iridates and ruthenates and conclude by venturing a perspective for research on spin-orbit-coupled oxides [1,2].
