Topological Phases in Transition Metal Oxides
Speaker(s): Gregory Fiete
Abstract: Certain varieties of transition metal oxides possess both significant interactions and strong spin-orbit coupling. In this talk I will describe materials-motivated models that predict topological phases in heterostructured and bulk transition metal oxides. We find Z2 topological insulators, Chern insulators, topological crystalline insulators, and interaction-driven topological phases not adiabatically connected to non-interacting topological phases.
