Advanced Electronic Materials
The main research interest
involves the use of different experimental techniques to produce
new advanced electronic materials, determination of their mechanical,
electronic and magnetic properties as a function of temperature
and their possible use in industrial applications. At the present
time the new rare earth high-Tc superconductors are under intensive
investigation due to their unusual quantum properties and possible
applications in both the small device field and screening configuration
together with studies of the intrinsic properties of these materials.
Other active interests include surface analysis where x-ray photoelectron,
Auger electron and electron energy loss spectroscopies as well as
x-ray absorption fine structure and NEXAFS spectroscopies are used
to determine the electronic structure of new materials. During the
last eight years more than 150 papers have been published on the
superconductor research work including those describing the leading
edge work on the growth of ultrahigh purity single crystals and
high current capacity thick films.
Recently, we have started developing
new rare-earth manganite materials for our colossal magnetoresistance
