Our research focus lies in both the synthesis and characterization of new materials exhibiting novel or improved properties, using experimental as well as theoretical techniques.

Research goals include, but are not limited to, the following:

Our overall approach is to undertake cradle-to-grave projects which begin with the synthesis of novel compounds and their applications, including:

Many of the properties of interest are electromagnetic in character. Important properties include:

Many types of instrumental methods are employed to measure properties of interest and to explore the underlying microscopic mechanisms. Sometimes the use of a certain method requires modification of the existing apparatus or even the development of a new one. For instance we are in the final stages of developing a 3.3 tesla EPR probe for our quantum design PPMS. In addition to these in-house instruments, collaboration with NHMFL allows for the use of high field instruments for ENDOR, DOR, MAS, MQMAS, STM, EPR, and AFM.
