Emergent Phenomena in Quantum Materials


We use synchrotron-based resonant x-ray spectroscopy to study quantum materials. Our primary techniques are resonant x-ray absorption, reflection, and diffraction. These techniques allow us to probe various forms of emergent phenomena found in new materials with possible applications as next generation electronic devices.

Our Experimental Facilities

Canadian Light Source

We perform many of our experiments at the Canadian Light Source, located at the University of Saskatchewan campus, right in our own backyard! The CLS is a 3rd generation synchrotron light source with a large number of beamlines ranging from infrared to hard x-ray energies. We primarily use the REIXS and SGM beamlines.

Our Team


We have openings for undergrad and grad students!

Our Collaborators

Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute

We have a close collaboration with the world-leading Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute at the University of British Columbia. SBQMI researches systems and phenomena explicitly involving quantum mechanics, with a main initial thrust devoted to Quantum Materials.
