* Students/Postdocs Only:  We encourage you to stay for another 30 minutes after the talk for a Q&A discussion with the speaker

During the academic year, the Physics Department hosts a series of Condensed Matter Seminars presented by accomplished physicists from all over the world. Please join us on the Mondays at 2:30 pm listed below for an inside look at physics. All lectures will be both in-person and via Zoom, and are free and open to the public. 

Join us for the Physics Condensed Matter Seminar at 2:30 - 3:30 pm
Title: Superconductivity in nickelate heterostructures

Nickel and copper are nominally very similar in chemistry so the search for superconductivity in nickelates is a story almost as old as the quest to understand the high temperature superconductivity of the cuprates. A central feature of these efforts was to find a nickelate with a similar electronic structure to that of the cuprates and a significant part of this approach utilized thin filmsand heterostructures.
