We are interested in the development and application of neutron scattering techniques to characterized the structure and dynamics of correlated-electron systems. Specific topics of current interest include the following:

  • High-temperature superconductivity
  • Itinerant antiferromagnetism
  • Charge-stripe order and fluctuations
  • Coupling of charge, spin, and lattice correlations
  • Intertwined vs. competing orders

Our research interests are pursued in close collaboration with the other groups in CMPMS. For neutron scattering measurements, we are regular users of the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) and High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) at Oak Ridge National Lab, and the NIST Center for Neutron Research. Crystals for these experiments are generally grown in our laboratories in the Interdisciplinary Science Building at Brookhaven.

Significant collaborations and activities include:
