Abstract

This thesis comprises studies of 3d-5d transition metal oxides with various degrees of electronic correlation using nonlinear harmonic generation rotational anisotropy as well as time-resolved optical reflectivity methods. Specifically, we explored photo-induced phase transition in Ca2RuO4 and Sr2IrO4, discovered novel electronic phases in doped Sr2IrO4 and Sr3Ir2O7, and investigated different types of antiferromagnetic orders in transition metal trichalcogenides MPX3.
