Heavy Fermion Session 
Heavy fermion compounds are prototypical examples of strongly correlated electron systems. In these materials the competition between the magnetic interactions, which favor magnetic order, and the Kondo interaction, which favors the formation of a non-magnetic singlet, leads to a wide variety of ground states which can be readily tuned by applying pressure. The application of pressure to heavy fermion systems can lead to a wealth of novel quantum phases including heavy fermion superconductivity and provides a great opportunity to study the interplay of these phases, as well as quantum criticality and its related phenomena. In recent years significant progress has been made on the study of heavy fermion systems including the discovery of new pressure-induced heavy fermion superconductors, a greater understanding of the relationship between superconductivity and quantum criticality, and evidence for multiple quantum phase transitions being induced by different tuning parameters. In this Focus Session we will bring together colleagues from the heavy fermion community to discuss the emergent quantum phases and other phenomena induced by applying pressure to heavy fermion materials.
