DOMINION provides an intimate engagement of syntheses and characterisation for a wide range of layered iron-based chalcogenide compounds. The successful candidate will study the fundamental physics of iron-based chalcogenide magnets and superconductors, made up of functional molecular components with nanoscale dimensions. For this, user-facility photon and neutron science labs will be utilized to generate key insights on how structure and spontaneous magnetic transitions influence the superconducting electron pairing. Knowledge of correlated-electron physics/materials and physical crystallography, including diffraction experiments and data analysis strategies, will be invaluable for this innovative research project.
The challenges set out here will be tackled through a cross-disciplinary, collaborative initiative between European (Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas, Greece & Warsaw University of Technology, Poland) and US DOE scientists (Brookhaven National Lab, NY & National High Magnetic Field Lab, FL). A comprehensive range of research activities, engaging young researchers (PhD and post-doc levels) with senior scientists, is organized to facilitate a resource-sharing culture and tackle open questions.
