Dr. Zhang's group is dedicated to finding novel properties in low dimensional complex systems and is capable of characterizing both long and short lived states due to in-situ growth and characterization capabilities. Ongoing research projects include the phenomena occuring at surfaces and interfaces of transition metal oxides using scanning tunneling probes, electron scattering, and photoemission. Correlated electron materials are also invesitgated using neutron scattering. Our work is supported by the National Science Foundation and Department of Energy.
