|Welcome to the Coherent X-ray Science Research Group!|
We are an experimental research group in the Physics & Astronomy Department of the University of Southampton. We are interested in correlated phenomena in nanoscale materials. We also have interest in nanomaterials for device applications. Our group makes use of coherent X-ray diffraction imaging (CXDI) to study nanoscale materials.
Our laboratory houses specialised equipment including an excimer laser system for advanced materials fabrication. We also make use of a number of synchrotron light sources including the Diamond Light Source (DLS) in Oxfordshire, the Advanced Photon Source at the Argonne National Laboratories (USA), the Spring-8 synchrotron facility and the SACLA X-ray free electron laser (X-FEL) facility, Japan.
