Physics archaeology: unearthing a 45 year old quantum spin liquid
Patrick Lee, William & Emma Rogers Professor of Physics, MIT,

Abstract: I will introduce the topic of quantum spin liquid as a prime example of emergent behavior in strongly interacting system. Recently a new example, 1T-TaS2 has been discovered. Surprisingly this material has been thoroughly studied for 45 years as a charge density wave material but its spin liquid property has escaped attention. I will also describe some theoretical modeling using numerical methods and proposals to dope this and related materials to look for exotic superconductivity.
