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.

News

On March 28, 2017, we saw "first light" at our new IRIXS spectrometer at the PETRA-III synchrotron in Hamburg. IRIXS stands for "Intermediate-energy Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering", a method that will allow energy- and momentum-resolved measurements of electronic modes in quantum materials with 4d valence electrons. The construction of the unique instrument is made possible by an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council. The photo shows Hlynur Gretarsson sharing a drink to celebrate this event with Markus Tischer, whose group designed the undulators that supply photons to the spectrometer.  See also the time lapse video of him, Simon Mayer, Hasan Yavas and others assembling the spectrometer.
