Research

Strong couplings of lattice, electron, spin, orbital degrees of freedom produce a rich variety of physical phenomena and also technologically important materials, including superconductors, multiferroics, and thermoelectrics, and quantum magnets. Neutrons and X-ray studies of structural and dynamic properties of these materials under various temperatures, fields, and pressures yield essential understanding of the relationships between those coupled degrees of freedoms and further guide new material development and application.
