We use both angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and time resolved techniques for elucidating the electronic structure and dynamics of quantum materials such as unconventional superconductors, materials with topological surface state, and 2D materials.   These advanced materials hold promise for revealing new emergent phenomena, elucidating interactions in many body systems, and enabling tomorrow’s electronics and energy resources.  Our experiments are performed both in our labs at UC Davis and at nearby synchrotron facilities.
