Bilateral Control of Electrons and Light through Electron Correlation

Research Project Outline

Electrons in some transition metal oxides and complexes mutually interact strongly so that their independent motion is suppressed. This is called electron correlation. The correlation brings about spontaneous order among the electrons. The electron ordering is strongly affected by light and light, in turn, is strongly modulated by the electron order. In this way, light and the electron order are tightly bound and bilaterally controllable. In this project, we will optimize and maximize the light-electron interaction through artificial structures so that even electrons in a single lattice layer can produce profound effects.
