Turbulent hydrodynamics in strongly correlated Kagome materials

Maggio 12, 2021@11:00 am–12:00 pm

Seminario di Fisica Teorica – Dr. Ioannis Mattheakakis (Wurzburg Univ.)

In recent years a lot of interest has been directed towards realizing strongly-coupled electronic fluids. This interest is partly because a stronger coupling enables the transition to the hydrodynamic regime and partly because of the novel transport phenomena such a fluid promises. Strongly-coupled fluids are also a natural and fertile ground for testing and refining our understanding of AdS/CFT and holography in general. In this talk, I will first show that Kagome materials with a relativistic spectrum are a compelling platform for realizing strongly-coupled fluids. Then, I will employ holography to estimate their ratio of shear viscosity to entropy density. With that estimate at hand, I will finally argue that strongly-coupled Kagome fluids put for the first time non-linear hydrodynamic phenomena such as turbulence within experimental reach.
