Instrumentation, Material and Correlated Electrons Physics (IMAPEC)
Responsable : Daniel BRAITHWAITE

Instrumentation, Advanced materials, and Physics of correlated electron systems

Our aim in IMAPEC is to tackle current issues in condensed matter physics through three actions:

State of the art measurements, especially in extreme conditions of very low temperature, high magnetic field, and high pressure that require a continuous effort to develop our own original and competitive instrumentation.

A well equipped crystal growth facility, with an extremely competent team, able to grow high quality crystals of known systems, and to explore new compounds.

A longstanding experience in the field of correlated electron physics, reinforced by strong collaborations in France and worldwide with other experimental groups and theorists.

Experimental techniques and facilities at IMAPEC : IMAPEC is one of the most prominent laboratories for very precise measurements under extrem condictions as very low temperature, high magnetic fields, and high pressure. In particular it is renownded for it very low temperature thermal conductivity measurements and its development of new techniques ... More »

Quantum phase transitions in heavy fermion systems : We are interested in quantum phase transitions in heavy fermion compounds. These are intermetallic compounds with an incomplete filled electronic f shell, like Ce, Yb of U compounds showing strongly renormalized Fermi liquid properties at low temperature. This renormalization manifests itself in an ... More »

Unconventional superconductivity : Superconductivity was first observed in 1911 by Heike Kammerlin Onnes in Leiden is starting from these days still a very active research area in physics. A complete microscopic theory of superconductivity was given in 1957 by Bardeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer (so-called BCS theory) which explaines ... More »

In a metal the energy levels of the electrons, which have to be all in different quantum states due to the Pauli exclusion principle, are filled up to the Fermi energy at zero temperature. The surface of constant energy in the reciprocal space separating occupied and unoccupied electronic states is ... More »

Combined extreme conditions of high pressure and strong magnetic field are an extremely powerful tool to tune microscopic interactions in order to attain and study new states of matter. While high pressure measurements in static magnetic fields present no particular difficulty, the maximum static ... More »
