Seeking Postdoctoral Researchers (W23125) (Strong-Correlation Quantum Structure Research Group)

Publié il y a 2 mois

Offer Description

[Background of the recruitment and description of the project] * Background of the recruitment and description of the project
[Research Field] Strongly correlated electron systems may exhibit various interesting emergent phenomena such as superconductivity, colossal magneto-resistance, and giant magneto-electric effects. These emergent phenomena are directly associated with the spatial distributions as well as the spatial and temporal fluctuations of atoms, electron density, and spin density. We are going to perform crystallographic and magnetic structure analyses, spectroscopies, and imaging by using synchrotron x-rays and neutrons to reveal them.
