Magnetization and Dynamics


We are interested in probing and controlling material properties that are governed on the nanometer (nm) length scale by the fundamental properties of the electron, its charge and spin, evolving on the femtosecond (fs) timescale.  Access to the ultra-fast time and ultra-small length scales is enabled by synchrotron radiation such as that produced by the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (SSRL) and, since 2010 by the intense, coherent fs soft x-ray pulses at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), the world’s first x-ray free electron laser. The use of these unique x-ray tools requires a highly collaborative and interdepartmental approach.
