Quantum Criticality Proposed to Instigate New Phases Including Exotic Superconductivity R. B. Laughlin et al., Adv. Phys. 50, 361 (2001). AFM AFI Pseudogap FL SC FL = res +AT 2 1: fluctuations (e.g. spin fluctuations) present at T = 0 can mediate quasiparticle pairing 2: singular density of states (i.e. m* ) is unstable. Superconductivity very efficient at opening gap and lowering energy Reasons: Non-Fermi Liquids Fundamental questions: can we understand new states of matter including exotic orders like high Tc superconductivity?

Outstanding problems to be answered How the phases can be formed near the QCP of a correlated matter? Is the new phase really linked to the QCP? A QCP can involve the large FS reconstruction? Fermiology vs Hall effects

Outstanding problems to be investigated 1. Can we find a new quantum paraelectrics near the quantum critical point of ferroelectrics or multiferroics? BiMn 2 O 5 case 2. Can we realize new multiferroics ? (eg. SnTe doped with Mn?) Theory + Experiments (Design of materials) 3. Developments of quantum technology to explore challenging measurements Tiny magnetic moment measurement as tuned by electric fields Tiny specific heat measurements under quantum regime to see electronic quantum oscillations or to study phase transition at low T
Recently discovered superconducting below 50mK, Ag 5 Pb 2 O 6 has a very simple Fermi surface with m * /m~1. Sutherland et al, PRL 96, 097008 (2006) Mann et al, Physica C, M2S Proc. (2006) However, the resistivity is not simple. It has quasi-T 2 dependence up to at least room temperature. What is the cause? Phonons? Yonezawa and Maeno, PRB 70, 184523 (2004) It will be useful to measure C more precisely up to and beyond 400K using the high T heat capacity probe, to confirm saturation to Dulong-Petit value. Plus we need more theory input…! Peter Mann Research plan, Ag 5 Pb 2 O 6 : a simple superconductor?
