Precise synthetic control of the local electronic structure of metal centers within materials offers the potential to engender exotic physical properties. In particular, tuning the electronic structure of metal centers enables the creation of strongly correlated electron systems, enabling researchers to ask fundamental questions about magnetism and superconductivity. Within this Seed, a team of researchers is working on harnessing classes of mixed anion systems to discover and manipulate magnetic and superconducting properties of materials. Currently, numerous materials offer the potential to host topologically interesting phenomena, thereby tying into the NSF goal of creating new quantum materials. Indeed, any material that offers fundamental excitations that differ from previously studied particles is of interest within this area.
