Advances in unit cell scale synthesis have unlocked the ability to create artificial materials at the interface of complex oxides. This opens the door to the rational design of materials properties. To explore the spin, charge, and orbital character of these synthetic materials, resonant x-ray scattering techniques are utilized that unveil their long-range ordering and low energy excitations. In this talk, we will explore several recent examples of this new methodology, and we will provide an outlook on the future of this emergent field.
