Our low-temperature crystallography instrument has a new home. It now lives in a dedicated space in 117 MRL, where it will be used by many research groups for decades to come. Stella Sun and Sangjun Lee did a great job moving the equipment, and thanks go to Youli Li for helping with the alignment and […]
We just finished our first Free Electron Laser experiment, using the SXR endstation during Run 15 of the Linac Coherent Light Source. The goal was to study the collective modes of the stripe phase in La2-xBaxCuO4. SLAC Facebook post here.
After 2.5 years of refereeing, Sean’s M-EELS paper was finally published in the open-access journal SciPost. This paper explains the reasons for developing the M-EELS technique and how it works. Read it here.
We did our first experiment on qRIXS, the world’s first fully angle-resolved soft RIXS spectrometer, which is under development at the Advanced Light Source. This thing will open up a new approach to studying valence band excitations in materials. Find out more.
This joint paper spearheaded by Vidya Madhavan’s group shows the complementarity of M-EELS and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) experiments. Read it here.
Anshul’s TiSe2Cux paper appeared in Phys. Rev. Lett.. This study shows that superconductivity in copper-doped materials is associated with an incommensurate phase, just as do materials subjected to hydrostatic pressure. Read it here.
