Title:
Spin spirals and charge textures in transition-metal-oxide
heterostructures discovered by resonant x-ray scattering

Abstract:
The Fermi surface of a metal, which determines most of its macroscopic
properties, can become unstable at low temperatures to the formation
of spin or charge density waves, superconductivity, or other
collective electronic ordering phenomena. Understanding and tailoring
these ordered states in transition-metal-oxides using hetero-epitaxial
growth techniques has become a major field in condensed matter
research, but experimentally unraveling their microscopic details
remains a challenge.

In this talk, I will present evidence of novel spin and charge density
wave order in nickelate and cuprate heterostructures, respectively.
Using the powerful technique of resonant x-ray scattering, the nature
of these ordered patterns will be uncovered. In addition, I will
present a potential outlook for further controlling these ground
states.
