Victor R Fanelli

Scientific Associate


Dr. Fanelli is the scientific associate for the inelastic neutron scattering (INS) spectrometers SEQUOIA BL-17 and ARCS BL-18. 

Research
Dr. Fanelli's current scientific interest is studying the interplay of localized and itinerant electrons and how it evolves towards coherent collective interactions as temperature decreases. This is relevant to understand many phenomena in materials from the family of “strongly correlated electron systems”, like high temperature superconductors and heavy fermion compounds.
