포항공대 고체분광연구실

Our group specializes in studying the solid state structure via spectroscopical means. Under the supervision of Prof. Bumjoon Kim, researchers and students perform active studies on strongly correlated materials.

Our current interest lies in discovering the nature of ordering phenomena in transition metal oxides, one of the most important strongly correlated electronic systems. Amongst the oxides with transition phenomena our main concern are iridates, of which their characteristics and physical properties can be learned from the following articles :

Phase-Sensitive Observation of a Spin-Orbital Mott State in Sr2IrO4
Square Lattice Iridates

The main tools used in the research here are: x-ray spectroscopy (RXD, RIXS), Raman spectroscopy, neutron spectroscopy, ARPES and crystal synthesis. You can find more information about the individual tools and how they are used here.
