Daniel Dessau Portrait
Professor • Adjunct Fellow of JILA
(303) 492-1607

Office: DUAN F627

Research Interests:

Professor Dessau's research interests center around using femtosecond optics and electron spectroscopic tools for the study of the electronic structure, magnetic structure, and phase transitions of novel materials systems such as high temperature superconductors (HTSCs or cuprates) and colossal magnetoresistive oxides (CMRs or manganites).
