Living in Fourier Space: how to use the interaction between x-rays and matter to surf waves at the nanoscale (2/9)

by Alex Frañó (Univ. of California San Diego (US))




Alex Frañó's research is focused on investigating strongly correlated electron systems using various x-ray scattering techniques. These "quantum materials" are characterized by the various macroscopic properties that can emerge due to having highly correlated electronic wave functions: magnetism, charge/orbital order, high-temperature superconductivity, etc. He is particularly interested in synthesizing and studying transition-metal-oxide ceramics (both in bulk single crystal form as well as in epitaxially grown films, bilayers, and superlattices) to explore their emerging phases and possible functionalities. 

To investigate these instances of coherent, spatial ordering, he utilizes state-of-the-art x-ray scattering techniques including: resonant elastic scattering, resonant inelastic scattering, inelastic scattering, coherent scattering, and high-resolution diffraction. These exciting experiments are done at large-scale synchrotron facilities around the world.
