Experimental Condensed Matter

These systems include bulk, nano-size particles, and thin films of soft and hard magnets, ferrites, and magnetic oxides. Other interests include nano-particle catalyst. The primary techniques for studying these materials are magnetic susceptibility and Mössbauer spectroscopy in high magnetic fields and at temperatures ranging from 4.2 to 1000 K. The goal of this work is to correlate the physical magnetic properties to the state of materials and the size growth of nano-scale particles.

Professor Ambal recently joined us and is setting up his lab now.
