Theory of ultra-fast dynamics in correlated multi-band systems (UfastU)

Start date: Apr 1, 2017, End date: Mar 31, 2022,

Many of the intriguing properties of complex materials, such as magnetism and superconductivity rely on the cooperative behavior of electrons in systems with several active spin and orbital degrees of freedom. Using femtosecond laser pulses it has become possible to probe and control these systems on microscopic timescales. This does not only provide an entirely new approach to understand the emer ...

Silicon carbide presents a high breakdown field (2-4 MV/cm) and a high energy band gap (2.3–3.2 eV), largely higher than for silicon. Within this frame, the cubic polytype of SiC (3C-SiC) is the only one that can be grown on a host substrate with the huge opportunity to grow only the silicon carbide thickness required for the targeted application. The possible growth on silicon substrate has remai ...

Compressed fluid systems handled in high pressure processes feature diffusivities smaller than the kinematic viscosity. Therefore during mixing the lifetime of micro(µ)-scale(s) inhomogeneities exceeds that one of macro(m)-scale(s) inhomogeneities. Thus m-s homogeneous systems can still exhibit µ-s inhomogeneities. They affect the functioning-chain of processes, e.g. reactions and phase-transition ...
