Title: Hydrothermal Synthesis of Metal Vanadates: From Lasers to Frustrated Magnets and Maybe Even Some Quantum Materials

Abstract: The high-temperature hydrothermal method (with temperatures 5-700˚C, pressures 200MPa) can be an excellent route to new materials, often in the form of large, high-quality single crystals. This talk will focus on the transition metal vanadates as a test bed for of this experimental method. The evolution from metal vanadate crystals as laser hosts to low dimensional magnetic structures to long-range frustration will be traced. The use of neutron diffraction to determine the magnetic structures of these materials will be discussed, and the value of hydrothermal single crystal growth in this class of materials will be highlighted.
