Research Interests

Our group focuses on understanding ultrafast dynamics in quantum materials. These materials form an active field of research due to their emerging applications in next generation energy-efficient computing. We perform in-situ studies of quantum materials to monitor the evolution of functional (electronic, optical and magnetic) properties following application of voltage, temperature or laser. Specifically, laser excitation provides us with a unique way to manipulate functional properties at femtosecond-picosecond timescales. The main characterization tools utilized in our research group vary from in-lab capabilities such as Magnetic Property Measurement System and Versalab for characterizing electrical and magnetic properties of materials to X-ray studies performed at synchrotrons and x-ray lasers housed in National User Facilities.
