Solid State Spectroscopy

Physics of strongly correlated electron systems

The department uses neutron and X-ray diffraction and spectroscopy as well as optical spectroscopy and Raman scattering to explore the structure and dynamics of materials with strong electron correlations. We also have a strong effort in the development of new spectroscopic methods. As the close collaboration between experimentalists and theorists is essential for the progress in this field, a small theory group operates within the department.

The macroscopic properties of materials with strongly correlated electrons are influenced not only by atomic-scale spin and charge correlations, but also by emergent domain structures on sub-micrometer length scales. Neutron Larmor diffraction and dilatometry have yielded new insights into the mechanisms driving the formation of  mesoscopic magnetic and structural domains in the antiferromagnetic parent compound of a high-temperature superconductor.
