  • Title of Project: Inelastic photon scattering from quantum materials

Thesis abstract:
In solid state physics, photons interact with the electrons and many other quasi-particles. Therefore, they can be used as versatile probes for the electronic, structural, and magnetic properties of crystals. Together with my colleagues, I will use state-of-the-art spectroscopy techniques such as Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) and Raman spectroscopy to explore a variety of novel phenomena in quantum materials, especially the interplay of charge order, superconductivity, and magnetism in copper and ruthenium compounds.
