General Lab Information

X-Ray Scattering Group

Daniel Mazzone


  • Using static and time-resolved X-ray scattering techniques to study intertwined degrees of freedom in strongly correlated electron systems
  • Used neutron scattering and muon spin spectroscopy to study the interplay between magnetism and superconductivity in unconventional metals
  • Experienced in sample synthesis (flux and Bridgman growths) and macroscopic probes, such as AC/DC magnetization, heat capacity/conductance and electrical resistiivity
