Research & Accomplishments
The focus of our research is the development of magnetic materials for biophysical applications. This program encompasses chemistry, physics, and synthesis of magnetic materials. We design and build sensitive instrumental techniques to characterize the physical properties of these materials. Theoretical analysis of the physical properties leads to development of novel materials with superior properties, tuned to a particular need, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) enhancement, magnetic refrigeration, and standards for MRI.
