Spins in quantum materials

Description of Activities:

The dynamics of the spin degree of freedom play a key role in many quantum materials, but are difficult to measure. We combine non-linear optical spectroscopy with resonant X-ray techniques to investigate how electronic excitation perturbs spin order. This interaction is vital for testing Mott-Hubbard models of quantum materials in real systems.
