Tyler Smith

What is your thesis topic?
“Exploring electronic instabilities in triangular lattices through multiple doping schemes: Mott insulators and Rashba systems”

How is materials processing involved in your research?
The research is primarily focused on adsorbate doping of correlated electronic systems on silicon platforms, potentially driving these surfaces into a superconductive state. This is performed in-situ, where these surfaces are decorated with electron-donating alkalides or electron-accepting molecules.

Provide an example of where the material/process/properties you are studying might find an application.
The possibility of attaining superconductivity on a silicon platform is highly lucrative as it is an abundant material in modern devices, with a potential application into new technologies such as quantum computing.
