Our research interests are devoted to optical and magneto-optical properties of novel strongly correlated electron systems exhibiting unconventional electronic transport and magnetic phenomena. We use wide-band, from sub-mm to deep ultraviolet, spectroscopic tools such as ellipsometry, reflectance and transmittance measurements to explore the interplay between charge, orbital and spin degrees of freedom in transition metal oxides and the mechanism of high-temperature superconductivity in ferropnictides and cuprates. Recently our research has been focused on the interface induced optical anomalies and unusual physics occurs in oxide-based artificially fabricated nanostructures.

Dielectric response and transverse field muon
spin rotation measurements show that
superlattices with LaNiO3
as thin as two unit cells undergo a
sequence of collective metal-insulator and antiferromagnetic transitions upon
cooling, whereas superlattices
with thicker LaNiO3
layers remain metallic and paramagnetic at all
