Our research efforts focus on the microscope structure and dynamics of condensed matter using x-ray and neutron scattering techniques. Areas of study include the following:
These studies make extensive use of neutron and x-ray facilities both in the United States and Europe, as well as local facilities at Indiana University. Our research group is also involved in operating and constructing state of the art instrumentation. These efforts include:
Our work focuses on the study of the structure and dynamics of condensed matter systems under confinement at the nanoscale. Confinement in nanometer size pores or on surfaces can drastically affect the properties of confined systems ranging from classical solids to quantum liquids and can even lead to new phases not present in the bulk. We use neutron and x-ray scattering to probe the microscopic structure and dynamics of these confined systems.
