“General Introduction to Correlation Effects in Condensed Matter Physics”
Using neutron scattering technique as the main research tool, Prof. BAO has investigated a variety of frontier issues of correlated electronic systems in condensed matter, including the Mott metal-insulator transition, colossal magnetoresistivity, orbital ordering, re-entrant spin-glass state, itinerant antiferromagnetism, low-dimensional quantum antiferromagnetism and unconventional superconductivity in heavy-fermion, cuprate and iron-based materials, often under extreme condition at low temperature, high pressure and high magnetic field. His works have led to more than 200 invited talks in US, Europe and Asia.
