Advances in technology require the advancement of understanding and creating new materials. Quantum materials - materials exhibiting quantum behavior- are a hot topic in condensed matter physics. Perhaps the most well known new materials are the quantum materials termed superconductors, materials with no electrical resistance below a temperature Tc, but there are many more. For example, materials exhibiting frustration of interactions such as inter-atomic forces, are theorized to lead to another type of quantum material (quantum spin liquids) which could be the key to the next big advance in technology. The synthesis of such a new material proves to be a challenge. This dissertation explores 1D systems grown through slow evaporation or gel methods, and frustrated 2D systems grown through electro-crystallization and hydrothermal means. The synthesis and results will be described.
A Dissertation submitted to the Department of Physics in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy.
