Abstract:

Correlated quantum materials host a vast array of emergent electronic phenomena driven by a fine balance between Coulomb interaction and spin-orbit interaction. One of the grand challenges in the field is understanding how strong interactions affect the electronic properties of these materials and ultimately lead to their exotic properties.

In this talk, I will describe how we utilize angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and time-resolved ARPES to investigate a variety of correlated quantum materials with particular emphasis on unconventional superconductors and artificially engineered 2D materials where new emergent electronic states can be achieved.
