Dynamics in Materials
We study the phonon, magnon, and the interactions between themselves and with other degrees of freedom and nanostructures in materials.
We use high pressure technique based on diamond anvil cells and other high-pressure environments to probe and tune the dynamics and structure of materials, including interfacial phenomenons.
We use machine learning and data science tools to guide the scattering experiments and spectroscopy analysis.
We use neutron and synchrotron scattering (both elastic and inelastic) at national facilities and optical spectroscopy (such as Raman) to study materials.
We use first-principles methods to simulation materials. We also do instrument simulation for the scattering experiments.
