Seidler Group Research
UW Physics

Our group's research focuses on the development and application of novel x-ray spectroscopies to problems of basic, applied, and environmental energy sciences. We have a number of different main thrusts and collaborations, including:


 In the next five years, we expect to emphasize studies of nano- and bulk-phase systems relevant for clean energy, basic questions involving correlated electron phenomenon in f-electron systems, and continued development of miniXS-style spectrometers. We work closely with John Rehr’s theory group, and graduate students often have theory side-projects en route to their dissertation.

Please see the list of publications for a more comprehensive perspective on our work.

Nothing happens in any research group without great students.  See the personnel page for more information about our team.
