Research Activities

Our research is focused on electronic, structural, and magnetic properties of novel materials. Strongly-correlated systems are of primary interest. Colossal magnetoresistance, multiferroics, and materials with self-organized nanostructure are examples of current problems under investigation. We address questions of fundamental importance in condensed matter physics, such as low-dimensional and frustrated magnetism, charge/orbital order, and electronic phase separation. The investigated materials also hold potential for practical applications, e.g. in magnetic recording. Our main experimental techniques are x-ray and neutron scattering. Experiments are performed on campus, and at leading national facilities, such as Brookhaven National Laboratory, and National Institute of Standards and Technology. We work in close collaboration with Prof. Cheong's group. Students get a broad exposure to worlds-best experimental scattering facilities, as well as to state-of-the-art laboratory techniques for crystal growth and characterization. Our group provides great opportunities for establishment of scientific contacts and collaborations.
