Spin-liquids, antiferromagnetism, and superconductivity in organic charge transfer salts: synthesis, neutron scattering and theory (2010–2012)

Aims: To answer fundamental questions about organic charge transfer salts. To grow high quality powders and crystals of these materials, perform neutron scattering experiments on these samples, and develop new theories to interpret our experiments. Significance: Answering fundamental questions about the organic charge transfer salts will provide important insights into 'strongly correlated materials', which have great technological potential and present major intellectual challenges. Expected outcomes: To observe quantum many-body states that differ fundamentally from those in other materials, e.g., 'spinons', new emergent particles. To provide new insights into the next generation of strongly correlated materials and superconductors.
