Rusydi’s lab is part of NUSNNI-NanoCore and Singapore Synchrotron Light Source. He joined Department of Physics of National University of Singapore in 2008. He was a postdoctoral fellow (2006-2008) at University of Hamburg (Germany), where he has been part of a team to develop VUV-Raman Spectroscopy at the Center for Free Electron laser (CFEL) as well as high-energy optical ellipsometry. He obtained his PhD (2006) and M.Sc (2001) degrees in Physics from University of Groningen (The Netherlands), and received his B.Sc (1998) in physics from Institut Teknologi Bandung (Indonesia). During his PhD time, he spent full-time as a research student at Brookhaven National laboratory (USA) and as part of a team to develop and use resonant soft X-ray scattering at National Synchrotron Light Source. He was awarded 2009 NUS Young Investigator Award and 2010 Singapore National Academy of Science-Young Investigator award.

Research Areas:

Study of interplay of spin, charge, orbital and lattice degrees of freedom at interface and surface of novel complex systems and nanostructured strongly correlated electron systems, such magnetic materials, high temperature superconductors, organic semiconductors, and molecular electronics materials.

Research Interest:

Develop in-situ synchrotron-based characterizations including resonant soft X-ray magnetic scattering, spectral generalized magneto-optical spectrocopic ellipsometry (from mid-infrared to vaccum-ultraviolet) and angular resolved photoemission spectroscopy, and in-situ (ultra) film growth (atomically layer-by-layer molecular beam epitaxy) at Singapore Synchrotron Light Source.
