Welcome to the Frano X Lab (a.k.a The X-ray Laboratory for Research on Periodic Quantum Materials). Based at the University of California, San Diego near the sunny beaches of La Jolla, CA, our group studies the fascinating properties of materials with strongly correlated electrons. We are interested in investigating long-range periodicities in the spin, charge, and orbital quantum states observed in transition-metal-oxide films, superlattices, heterostructures and single crystals. To explore these spatially periodic behaviors we operate in Fourier space by performing modern x-ray scattering experiments at synchrotrons around the world. Feel free to explore our website for more information.
We are currently looking for talented, motivated and creative graduate students
and postdocs. If you are

Likewise, if you have any questions about our research, or about condensed matter physics, please email us!
