Welcome to Sinha Group

Do you want to know about how the read-head inside your computer works? The  arrangement of spins in magnetic nanostructures and how they fluctuate? The quantum fluctuations of atoms in single crystals of solid Helium at temperatures near absolute zero? Or the structure and dynamics of lipid molecules in membranes that mimic the walls of living cells? These topics and more are investigated by the Sinha Group, primarily using x-ray and neutron scattering. The focus of our research is the study of the structure and dynamics of condensed matter.
