Metals Under Extreme Environments
Emergence involving correlations between d and f electrons in materials (namely eletctron strongly correlated materials) induces a staggering variety of novel phenomena, such as, ferromagnetism, antiferromagnetism, unconventional and high-temperature superconductivity, charge- and orbital-density waves, electronic phase separation, stripes, ferroelectricity, colossal magneto-resistance and magneto-capacitance.
