The last decades in solid-state research have seen the rise of rich and novel physics, beyond the Néel paradigm and transcending conventional descriptions based on Landau theory. Frustrated magnetism has contributed to these developments in major ways, through new concepts like the “Coulomb phase”, a highly degenerate state of matter brought to light by the discovery of spin ice in rare-earth pyrochlore networks. In the following PhD proposal, our aim is to use hyperkagome networks of rare-earths to further explore and develop this new physics.
