Time Reversal Symmetry Breaking in Unconventional Superconductors

Speaker: Dr Ravi Prakash Singh (Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Bhopal)
Date: Wednesday 19 May 2021
Time: 15:00
Venue: Zoom

The symmetry of a material plays a fundamental role in determining its physical properties. Symmetry breaking can modify the physics of a system and produce new and unusual behavior. Superconductivity is one of the best examples of a symmetry-breaking phenomenon. In conventional superconductors, gauge symmetry is broken, while in unconventional superconductors other symmetries may also be broken. In this talk, I present some recent results on Time-Reversal Symmetry Breaking in Unconventional Superconductor.

Bio: Ravi received his Batchelor and Master degree in Physics from Banaras Hindu University and PhD from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. He was a Postdoctoral fellow at the University of Warwick, UK before joining at IISER Bhopal as an assistant professor in November 2012. He has been working on strongly correlated electron materials including those exhibiting superconductivity, magnetism and other unconventional properties. Presently his group is working on unconventional superconductors, topological materials and high entropy alloys
