Time: 11:45am-12:45pm with 11:30am tea time

Room: ECE 202



The realization of quantum materials for energy science and quantum information applications requires an understanding of competing electronic phases spanning multiple scales of energy, time and length. Operating since 2014, the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) at Brookhaven National Laboratory has become a nexus for X-ray based studies of the electronic properties to advance knowledge of these key issues. Following an overview of NSLS-II and its beamlines tailored for quantum materials research, this talk will review the capabilities and current status of the soft resonant elastic X-ray scattering beamline, CSX. Recent research examples will be showcased, including charge ordering in high-temperature superconducting cuprates, magnetic ordering in artificially patterned samples and nickelates, and holography on in situ controlled exotic magnetic phases in multilayers.
