Biaxial Strain Control of Electronic Properties of Quantum Materials – BISCEPS-QM

Submission summary

The electronic properties of materials are intimately linked to their chemical composition and crystallographic structure. Understanding the close link between them is thus of prime importance, especially in systems displaying interesting phases both at the fundamental and applied levels. Quantum materials belong to such promising systems that display a variety of interesting phases and in which, in the last years, the application of uniaxial mechanical strain allowed to start modifying them. However, the best would be a biaxial control of the crystallographic structures at various temperatures to explore vast unexplored regions of phase diagrams. This ANR project aims at taking this challenge, and explore the temperature/biaxial strain phase diagram of quasi-2D quantum materials that display charge orders and superconductivity, to observe and control these phase transitions at will and eventually discover new phases.
