Holographic d-wave superconductors

Regular Seminar Marika Taylor (Southampton)

14:00 IC
room H503

In recent years there has ben considerable interest in using holographic methods to model strongly interacting condensed matter systems, including unconventional superconductors. However, many high Tc superconductors exhibit d-wave pairing and a satisfactory holographic realization of d-wave superconductors has been elusive. In this talk we will present a top down model for d-wave superconductors and discuss its phenomenology.
