Abstract : The research funded under this grant focused on the layered structure compounds BaNIS2 and BaCoS2. The former is a metallic conductor while the latter is a magnetic Mott insulator. We planned doping studies to study the effects of both disorder and the crossover to the metallic state. It is hoped that doping a Mott insulator to the metallic state might produce a high temperature superconductor. Unfortunately, due to the termination of the SDIO program, this research was supported for only one year (instead of the planned three years), so the project is not complete. (MM)
