Ray Osborn is currently the group leader of the Neutron and X-ray Scattering Group in the Materials Science Division of Argonne National Laboratory, where he has worked since 1992.
His research is in strongly correlated electron systems probing spin, charge and orbital correlations using neutrons and X-rays.
He has worked on quantum criticality, polarons in colossal magnetoresistive (CMR) oxides, and unconventional superconductivity in iron arsenides.
Osborn, who has more than 150 publications with over 2000 citations, is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and was awarded the University of Chicago Distinguished Performance Award in 2006 for his CMR research. He was a scientific director of the National School of Neutron and X-ray Scattering for seven years.
