The Micro Optical Spectroscopic Laboratory was built on August, 1999 in Room A100, College of Science building, Kung-Kuan campus of National Taiwan Normal University .
We are pursuing two primary research directions:
to study the nature and origin of the metal-insulator transition in highly correlated electron systems and characterize the excitation spectra in the mix of unusual magnetic order, enhanced electron interactions, and strong spin fluctuations that accompany the transition. The interplay of these elements bears on the ground state properties of high-Tc cuprate superconductors, various colossal magnetoresistance materials, and heavy fermion compounds.
to investigate the process of electron-molecular-vibration coupling, the nature of spin and charge excitons and broken symmetry ground state in low-dimensional organic and inorganic systems, the driving forces of structural and magnetic phase transitions, charge transport mechanisms, magnetic field effects, and chemical structural property relationships displayed in these processes.
Our aim is to use our understanding of the phase transition mechanisms in the exotic solid state electronic and magnetic systems to design new devices with novel materials properties.
