Quantum magnets are magnets in which quantum mechanical effects are strong and lead to unique and unexpected properties. With strong quantum effects, many interesting phenomena appear, such as the spin density waves, fluctuation-driven superconductivity, topological states, and the quantum spin liquids.
Our research goal is to study the role of quantum effects and provides a thorough understanding of the lattice, charge, and spin degrees of freedom and their complex interplay in exotic quantum magnets.
We use various elastic and inelastic x-ray and neutron scattering techniques that are ideal to study the lattice, charge, and spin degrees of freedom of matter. Our group also seeks to discover new materials through various synthesizing techniques, for example, the solid-state reaction technique and the high-temperature solution growth technique. The ability of making samples and using a variety of x-ray and neutron scattering techniques is the unique strength in our research group.
