Local probe studies on uniaxial pressure-tuned correlated electron systems

Uniaxial pressure tuning to strongly correlated electron systems turns out to be important experiments to change the symmetry of a condensed matter phase. This leads to interesting ground states where multicomponent order parameters may compete. In recent years, we have investigated two well-studied systems, namely BaFe 2 As 2 and Sr 2 RuO 4, to understand the effects of multicomponent order parameters by uniaxial pressure. We have used Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Muon Spin Rotation techniques to explore the microscopic properties of these systems.
In this presentation, I will try to give you a brief introduction to the topic of uniaxial pressure and how this can be used to tune and break the symmetry of condensed matter systems. Further, I will discuss our recent results.
