Bernhard Keimer Condensed matter physicist

Bernhard Keimer’s department uses neutron and X-ray diffraction and spectroscopy as well as optical spectroscopy and Raman scattering to explore the structure and dynamics of materials with strong electron correlations. They also develop new spectroscopic methods. Progress in this field requires close collaboration between experimentalists and theorists.
