About the group
Our interest is to understand why and how unconventional phenomena arise, and how they can be optimized for technological applications. We are studying various types of correlated systems ranging from metal-to-insulator transition, superconductors, topological insulator or magnetic materials. We are investigating their electronic and magnetic properties using a combination of X-ray, neutron and muon techniques at large scale facilities all over the world. In principal, the electronic properties are studied using angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES) and resonant X-ray scattering (RIXS), while the magnetic properties are probed with elastic/inelastic neutron scattering (ENS/INS) and muon spin rotation (µ+SR). We also synthesize organometallic compounds and thin-film deposition to study quantum magnetism and interface effects. Our experimental results are combined with theoretical models performed in collaboration with the Materials Theory group in Uppsala University and Nordita.
