Control of Phase Transitions in Strongly-Correlated Materials
One of the key scientific directions of our group is the study of phase transitions in strongly-correlated materials. We utilize external stimuli, such as THz pulses, temperature and strain to initiate and control the transition. Then we use static and ultrafast synchrotron– and FEL-based x-ray techniques to investigate and separate the various degrees of freedom involved in the process.
