BESSY II (September 2019)

Resonant X-ray Scattering Nostalgia. Users of UE46, is there a better plotting software?


STS experiments on FeSe (September 2019)

Quasiparticle Interference (QPI) measured at the UC Davis STM/S Lab.


Experiments at CLS (September 2019)

We were the first external users to use the QMSC ARPES beam line.

Hf2Te2P Paper Published !!! (August 2019)

Congratulations to Tim and our collaborators in Davis and Berkeley !

Band structure mapping with scanning tunneling spectroscopy provides the first experimental evidence for the strong topological state near 460meV above the Fermi energy.


qRIXS at ALS (August 2019)

I went to Berkeley and all I got was this data set! šŸ™‚

Actually the beam line worked beautifully and there is much more coming. Manuscript in preparation, stay tuned!

Resonant X-ray Scattering Experiments at SLAC

Studying cuprates in collaboration with Prof. Alex FraƱo from UC San Diego


Polarimetric RIXS on NCCO published as a Rapid Communication in Physical Review B

Ā We exploited the high-resolution ERIXS spectrometer at the ID32 beamline at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility to uncover the coupling between dynamic magnetic correlations and charge order in cuprates.

In thisĀ collaboration: UC Davis, Max PlanckĀ InstituteĀ FKF, University of Minnesota, Quantum Matter Institute (UBC), ESRF, CNRS,Ā Karlsruhe Institute for Technology ,Ā HZB, AGH Poland.

Congratulation to Martin Bluschke and collaborators. (July 2018).

We discovered the 3D stabilization of charge order in YBCO thin films, a behavior similar to what happens in bulk crystals of YBCO in high magnetic fields.

In thisĀ collaboration: Max PlanckĀ InstituteĀ FKF, HZB, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, UC San Diego,Ā  LBNL, IKERBASQUE, Donostia International Physics Center.

Alex Eisner’s last lecture (June 2018).

This was his last lecture before graduating:Ā linear response theory, Kubo formula, etc…

Alex Eisner learned and taught us the fundamentals of the quantum Hall effect and topological insulators.
