Brian Moritz

Brian Moritz

Brian is a Staff Scientist at SLAC in the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES). Brian uses a variety of numerical techniques, including quantum Monte Carlo and exact diagonalization, to study models for strongly correlated materials. Using efficient, parallel algorithms to perform numerical simulations, results can be compared to data from angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and other X-ray spectroscopies (primarily XAS, XES, and RIXS). His recent focus includes understanding the nonequilibrium physics revealed by various types of pump-probe experiments, including those performed at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS).

WEBPAGE
Thomas P. Devereaux

Thomas P. Devereaux

Professor Devereaux is a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University, Professor in the Photon Science Faculty at SLAC and Stanford University, and the former Director of the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES, the Materials Science Division at SLAC). His main research interests lie in the areas of theoretical condensed matter physics and computational physics. His research efforts focus on using the tools of computational physics to understand quantum materials and how spectroscopies can be used to fingerprint the influence of multiple degrees of freedom, interactions, and phases that lead to technologically relevant materials properties.

"As the speed and cost of computing continues to improve, we are poised to tackle heretofore unaddressed problems, with the goal of understanding electron dynamics via a combination of analytical theory and numerical simulations to provide insight into materials of relevance to energy science."
