Welcome to the Dynamics of Correlated Materials group!
We are an experimental research group focusing on the investigation of ultrafast processes in strongly correlated materials. Our goal is the understanding of the fundamental interactions at play on the microscopic level in such materials, leading to complex behavior. We develop and employ complementary ultrafast techniques such as time- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (trARPES) and time-resolved diffraction techniques to study those elementary interaction processes and couplings across ultrafast phase transitions.
In our study we used resonant ultrafast X-ray diffraction to study ultrafast magnetization dynamics in a series of 4f antiferromagnets, and systematically varied the 4f [more...]
In our recent study (arXiv link), we present a detailed investigation of the [more...]
In our study which was published in Nature Communications, we investigate an ultrafast charge-density-wave-to-metal transition after optical excitation by combining state-of-the-art time-resolved electronic and structural [more...]
