Routes to Bose-Einstein Condensation at Room Temperature

Objective

Enormous progress in material engineering, research tools and methods very frequently lead to revisiting the traditional topics of Condensed Matter Physics and their study under the very original and unexpected view-point. In the current project we propose to consider the possibility and realization of such textbook phenomena as Bose-Einstein condensation in three, on first glance different systems: 1. Carbon-based systems: Graphite, Graphene and Nanotubes 2. Exciton-Polariton excitations in semiconductors 3. Perovskite Oxides close to Metal-Insulator transition. that, according to the very recent studies demonstrate the very common feature: the Bose statistic of current (mass) carriers and tendency to form the condensed superconducting or/and superflluid state at high temperatures. It is this feature that unify the leading experts on these materials in the proposed Multidisciplinary Marie Curie IRSES project ROBOCON which has the final objective to understand the realization of BEC phenomena on the experimental and theoretical level in the proposed systems and elaborate practical recommendations for their further applications in High-Tech industry: polariton lasers for CD and DVD players and laser printers, novel Carbon- and Oxide- based microelectronics for computer RAM and CPU devices etc. Basing on this common subject we created the distributed consortium (network) of partner institutions, located in EU (France, UK, Italy) and Eligible Third Countries (Morocco, Brazil). Each of them has its own specialization and related with others by virtue of already existing bilateral collaborative links. In course of the project we suppose to amplify and order these collaborations and create the new links between partners under central common idea of study and optimization of mechanisms and realization of BEC. Series bilateral visits, training workshops and meetings are previewed for this purpose.
