Workshop Details
Competing Interactions and Colossal Responses in Transition Metal Oxides and Related Compounds
07/29/2024 - 08/02/2024
Meeting Description:

One of the most compelling themes to emerge in materials science recently is the degree to which materials properties are dramatically enhanced in the presence of finely balanced competing interactions. Nowhere is this more evident than in transition metal oxides and related compounds, which display a remarkable variety of phenomena that may be ascribed to length scales in the presence of such competition is a key challenge in condensed matter physics, and forms the subject of the workshop on "Competing Interactions and Colossal Responses in Transition Metal Oxides and Related Compounds".

This workshop is the eleventh in a highly successful series of workshops that have been held in Telluride since 1998. Initially, these focused on the physics of colossal magnetoresistive manganites, since then the workshops have evolved to embrace the full breadth of correlated electron transition metal oxides (TMO) and related compounds in bulk, thin film, and nanostructured forms. The workshop has always welcomed a combination of experiment and theory, and brings together chemists, physicists, and materials scientists working at the forefront of this exciting and diverse field.

The goals of the workshop are as follows:

1) To disseminate the most recent results in the physics of transition metal oxides and related compounds.

2) To provide a forum to discuss the underlying principles that govern the colossal response of materials subjected to strongly competing interactions.

3) To identify future directions for research in these materials.

4) To encourage new collaborations among experimental and/or theoretical programs among universities and national laboratories, and to strengthen ongoing collaborations.


The workshop format will allow for intensive discussion after each presentation, as well as for general topical discussions. This format will consist of morning sessions with 30-minute presentations, followed by free afternoons and informal evening discussion periods. The experience from the previous workshops demonstrated that this approach was not only highly effective, but also extremely well-received by all participants. The environment in Telluride fosters free and open interactions.

We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.

Telluride Science is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on Telluride Science's website. Feel free to contact Telluride Science's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
