Associate Professor

David HawthornThe Quantum Materials Spectroscopy group, led by Dr. Hawthorn, studies Quantum Materials using resonant soft x-ray scattering and x-ray absorption spectroscopy at synchrotrons such as the Canadian Light Source. By clarifying the nature of exotic spin, charge and orbital ordering phenomena that can occur in Quantum Materials, we hope to shed light on some of the long-standing mysteries in the rich physics of cuprate high temperature superconductors.
