Kyle Shen group can dial in control of strontium iridate

Shen's group offers insight on how different “knobs” can change material properties in ways that were previously unexplored or misunderstood. Studying strontium iridate the researchers were able to flip it from behaving like metal to a semiconductor by applying spin-orbit interactions or changing molecular bond angles.
