  • Byrum, Taylor M (2016-05-04)
    In this thesis, I present Raman scattering studies of the strongly correlated spinels CoV2O4 and MnV2O4. In CoV2O4, exclusive attention is given to a triply degenerate (T2g) phonon in order to determine the material's ...

  • Gomes, Kenjiro (2008)
    In the quest for a microscopic theory for the superconductivity in cuprates, one hotly debated issue is the temperature at which Cooper pairs first form. Do pairs form at the critical temperature Tc or do they form at ...
