Thermal Hall Phenomenology for the Present and the Future
Time: 10:00 (UTC/GMT+8:00,Beijing/Shanghai), Apr. 1 (Thur.), 2021
Venue: KITS Seminar Room, 4th floor, No. 7 Building, UCAS Zhong-Guan-Cun Campus
Speaker: Chen Jingyuan (Tsinghua, IASTU)
Thermal Hall effect is becoming a more and more important experimental approach to probe extraordinary physics in condensed matter systems. In the recent years, unexpectingly large thermal Hall effect has been observed in a few important insulators, creating much puzzles among the community. In this talk I will explain our physical explanations to these observations, and discuss the follow-up experimental results that verify our theories. I will also picture the general roadmap towards a better established framework for the phenomenological study for thermal Hall experiments in the future.
