About Us

Welcome to the homepage of the Stöhr and Dürr research group at Stanford University and SLAC National Acceleratory Laboratory. The members of our group are associated with the Department of Applied Physics, Department of Physics and Department of Material Science at Stanford University, the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES), the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (SSRL) and the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC). Our emails can be found in the Group Members section in case you want to know more about the group. For questions, comments, suggestions regarding the website, email cgraves@stanford.edu.

Our current research involves the study of material systems using x-rays. We are particularly interested in the magnetic and electronic properties of materials, and their dynamic evolution following electrical and optical excitations.

Our primary experimental tools are coherent x-ray scattering and x-ray microscopy in the soft x-ray regime, which yield nanometer spatial sensitivity. Other key techniques include x-ray absorption (XAS), x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD), and x-ray diffraction (XRD) to probe the electronic, spin and lattice systems respectively. We help maintain two beamlines at SSRL (13-1 and 13-3), and are frequent users at the LCLS and the Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory near the UC Berkeley campus.
