Professor Emeritus


Research Interests

The application of experimental techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), magnetization measurements, and electrical resistivity measurements in the study of a wide variety of condensed matter systems. Recently, the systems have included mesoporous Co3O4, Fe3O4, and γ-Fe2O3 nanostructured materials, 3d transition metal perovskite materials, Fe3O4 thin films, and Fe-based superconductors. The above techniques provide insight into the details of the microscopic electronic, magnetic, and atomic structures.
