IQIM Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Seminar

Revealing the Dirac fluid in graphene
Andy Lucas, Graduate Student, Subir Sachdev's group, Harvard University,

Abstract: Although the electrons in metals are interacting,  it has been notoriously hard to discover evidence for hydrodynamics in electron fluids.    In the first half of the talk, I will review what hydrodynamics is, why it is interesting and why it is so hard to see in metals.   In the second half, I will discuss the theoretical and experimental developments which enabled us to observe signatures of 'relativistic' hydrodynamics in a strongly-interacting Dirac fluid in charge neutral graphene.
