"Unraveling the mysteries in complex oxides by neutron scattering"
Neutron scattering is one of the most powerful tools for studying magnetic and structural properties of solids. It has made seminal contributions in a wide range of fields in condensed matter physics and material science, from high Tc superconductivity, colossal magnetoresistance to quantum magnetism. In this talk, I will begin by introducing the basic principles of elastic and inelastic neutron scattering techniques. I will then describe a few exemplary neutron scattering results from high Tc superconductors and quantum magnets that were crucial to understanding the physics of these systems.
