Welcome to Our Group’s webpage

Our current research interests are in the synthesis and characterizations of various interesting functional oxide and multifunctional materials (such as dielectric, ferroelectric, ferromagnetic, multiferroic, magnetoelectric, multicaloric, etc) in order to understand structure-property relationships in these materials. Applications of these materials in a variety of devices require fine tuning of their physical properties. Artificially engineered multilayered, nanocomposites, and heterostructured films of such materials are of great interest due to their novel properties, which cannot otherwise be achieved in homogeneous single phase materials.

Our research group is located in the new 'SCIENCE 1' building, a home for Institute of Materials Science: Rooms 1075 & 1076.
