Where Photons Meet Matter: Shining Light on Quantum Materials

Dr. Daniel Jost
Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences,
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

Understanding the emergence of complex macroscopic properties in quantum materials from their microscopic interactions is essential for engineering next-generation technologies. In this colloquium, I will discuss how state-of-the-art photon scattering techniques provide a unique lens to dissect these interactions. Focusing on two recent results, I will demonstrate the connection between the interactions’ spectroscopic fingerprints and the transport properties found in unconventional superconductors and colossal magneto-resistors. My conclusion will feature a perspective on the promising opportunities that cutting-edge photon spectroscopies hold for quantum materials research.
