Shouvik Chatterjee joined the Palmstrom group in November, 2016 after earning a doctoral degree in Physics from Cornell University. His graduate work focused on understanding electronic structure of strongly correlated electron systems, including heavy fermions and complex oxides, often employing a combination of the techniques of molecular beam epitaxy and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy.
Working in the Palmstrom group he plans to expand his materials palette to Heuslers and III-V systems to search for topologically non-trivial phases of matter.
His research is on molecular beam epitaxial growth, transport, and spectroscopy studies of topologically non-trivial Heusler alloys and designer Heusler heterostructures. His research projects include molecular beam epitaxial growth, transport, spectroscopy studies of topologically non-trivial Heusler alloys, proximity effect and emergent behavior in Heusler heterostructures.
