Edbert Sie

Research

Edbert Sie received his PhD in Physics at MIT, supervised by Prof. Nuh Gedik. Sie is interested in searching for novel quantum phases of matter at nonequilibrium, with particular interests in 2D condensed matter systems. At Stanford and SLAC, he uses intense electromagnetic radiation in the THz frequency to induce structural changes in these materials and take snapshots of the atomic-scale structure in motion using relativistic ultrafast electron diffraction. In combination with various ultrafast laser techniques, his research aims to innovate new ways of manipulating quantum materials at the atomic scale and on the femtosecond timescale, enabling future electronics and energy storage technologies.
