"Unraveling the mysteries in complex oxides by neutron scattering"
ABSTRACT:
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.
