Material Physics Group @ IOP
Our Research interests:
Low-dimensional systems in condensed matter:
Electronic and magnetic structure of low-dimensional and nanoscale-ordered systems
Quantum confinement effects in 2D, 1D, 0D
Designing atomically engineered thin films/heterostructures/superstructures
Transport in thin films and surface alloys
Spectroscopy and band mapping:
Spin-orbit coupling, Rashba effect
Band mapping, hybridization, Fermi surfaces
Topological insulators and other Dirac materials
Unconventional electronic phases in self-assembled superstructures on metals, semiconductors, Graphene, Silicene, Organic films, etc.
Strongly correlated systems:
Magnetism, transport, metal insulator transition and charge ordering in Transition metal oxides, spinels, chalcogenides, titanates, etc.
Spin glass behavior
Superconductitvity and intermatallic compounds
Application oriented research:
New generation Solar cells
Waste heat recovery
Magnetocaloric effect and magnetic refrigeration
