Our research centers on the experimental and theoretical investigation of the electronic structure of matter and its interplay with material properties and spectroscopy. Emphasis is placed on metallic and semiconductor materials in low dimensions, and more recently nano-systems, OLED materials, biomaterials and soft matters.

 

 

A major ongoing thrust is the development and applications of synchrotron radiation techniques at facilities including the Canadian Light Source at the University of Saskatchewan, Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory (Illinois), and Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (California).

Another experimental centre: Soochow University-Western University Centre which focuses on the development of varieties of nanomaterials for synchrotron radiation is founded in Suzhou, China, in Nov. 2012
