Research Interest

The research activity of our group is based on Experimental Materials Science. Our research studies include: (a) Multiferroics: In this area we synthesizes different kinds of multiferroics (bulk, thin films and nanoparticles) exhibiting simultaneously two or more of different ferroic orders such as (anti)ferroelectricity, (anti)ferromagneticity, or ferroelasticity in the same materials with a strong magnetoelectric (ME) coupling (appearance of an electric polarization P upon applying a magnetic field H and/or the appearance of a magnetization M upon applying an electric field E) at room temperature which will be very useful for many applications. (b) Diluted Magnetic Semiconductors (DMS): In this area of research we synthesize DMS materials (thin films of nano particles) which show magnetic as well as semiconducting properties simultaneously in the same materials. For characterization we use: XRD, SEM & EDX and TEM, DTA and DSC.
