With over 15 years of both scientific and instrumentation experience at X-ray facilities, Dr. Lee's objective, as an X-ray scientist, has been to address profound questions in many emergent materials (e.g., high-Tc superconductivity, magnetism, multiferroicity, Li-ion batteries, photovoltaics, and heterostructures). Dr. Lee has used comprehensive X-ray studies via both scattering and spectroscopy approaches spanning the hard and soft X-ray regimes. At the same time, he has developed new X-ray instruments (e.g., advanced scattering and spectroscopic setups) and innovative X-ray approaches needed to address these questions.

Current Role at Stanford

Dr. Lee is leading the resonant x-ray scattering program at Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource. With a focus on quantum material science, he is active in a broad range of research activities at synchrotron and free-electron laser facilities.
