About My Work

My work includes synthesis of high-Tc cuprates single crystals with traveling-solvent floating zone method, and applying Neutron Scattering, Muon Spin Rotation/Relaxation and high magnetic field transport techniques to probe the magnetic and the electronic phase diagram. My research focus on resolving a decades-old puzzle of magnetic phase transition and revealing correlations between novel features of charge transport and the unconventional superconductivity.
