2020 Sloan Research Fellows - Alex Frano UCSD Physics

2020 Sloan Research Fellows - Alex Frano UCSD Physics

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation congratulates the winners of the 2020 Sloan Research Fellowships. These 126 early-career scholars represent the most promising scientific researchers working today. Their achievements and potential place them among the next generation of scientific leaders in the U.S. and Canada. Winners receive $75,000, which may be spent over a two-year term on any expense supportive of their research.

2020 UCSD Recipient:  Alex Frano, Physics

Alex Frano's  group studies the fascinating properties of materials with strongly correlated electrons. They 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.
