Strongly correlated electron models for organic superconductors (2008–2012)

Aims: To combine theoretical physics, theoretical chemistry and experiment to discover how the electronic and magnetic properties of organic charge transfer salts emerge from their underlying atomic structure. Significance: These materials are of great scientific importance in their own right because of the variety of exotic phenomena they display and as a testing ground for theories of strongly correlated electronic materials which have great technological potential and represent a major challenge to theoretical physics and chemistry. Expected outcomes: Development and tests of the theory of organic charge transfer salts leading to advances in our understanding of these materials.
