research overview

  • Dr. Lee's research is in the field of experimental condensed matter physics. Her group investigates novel ground states of matters, particularly focused on the magnetism and electronic properties of materials, using thermodynamic and electrical and thermal transport studies. These are investigated under extreme conditions such as very low temperature, high magnetic field, high hydrostatic pressure and nanoscale sample sizes. Areas of research also cover thermal transport and thermoelectric phenomena, electrical and thermal conductions particularly in the presence of magnetic ordering and in low dimensional systems near the phase boundary. Our new single crystal synthesis set-up launched a couple of years ago successfully has produced a high quality semimetallic compounds, which, in combination with national high magnetic lab facility, has brought a significant expansion in the scope of our research program.
