Recently, several novel experimental probes have been developed that allow unprecedented level of precision in measuring the electronic properties of materials. These probes in particular include the resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS) and spin-resolved ARPES (ARPES stands for angular resolved photoemission spectroscopy). These techniques are especially powerful in elucidating the spin-dependent magnetic properties of strongly correlated materials and provide complementary information to the conventional methods such as neutron spectroscopy. The rational for this workshop is to bring together leading experts in these different methods, as well as theoreticians, united by the common interest in strongly correlated electron materials.


The spectrum of strongly correlated electron materials is very broad. While we will place particular emphasis on the 3d- and 4f-based materials, we intend to cover a variety of strongly correlated systems with the aim of achieving cross-talk among the different communities.

The workshop will revolve around four topical areas:

  • methodological advances in spectroscopic techniques
  • quantum magnets, including the effects of frustration
  • superconductivity in bad metals near magnetism
  • synthesis and characterization of novel materials
