Professor, Physics and Astronomy

Research interests: experimental condensed matter physics, x-ray scattering and x-ray spectroscopy, superconductivity, resonant soft x-ray scattering, quantum materials


Biography

The Quantum Materials Spectroscopy group, led by Professor Hawthorn, studies Quantum Materials using resonant soft x-ray scattering and x-ray absorption spectroscopy at synchrotrons such as the Canadian Light Source. We use these tools to investigate intertwinned order in Quantum Materials and shed light on the long-standing mysteries of high temperature superconductors.
