Material Science, Condensed Matter Physics
Our experiments use the world-class synchrotron Facilities at Berkeley (Advanced Light Source) and on U of S campus (Canadian Light Source). We also Perform state of the art computation of our measured spectra.
We are using synchrotron radiation with emphasis on three areas:
- Two dimensional materials (Graphene, Silicene)
- Spinelectronics materials
- Ultra hard materials
Resonant X-ray studies of Quantum Materials
We use synchrotron-based resonant x-ray spectroscopy to study quantum materials. Our primary techniques are resonant x-ray absorption, reflection, and diffraction. These techniques allow us to probe various forms of emergent phenomena found in new materials with possible applications as next-generation electronic devices.
