How do you create materials with new electronic and magnetic properties and structures?

This Research Stream focuses on materials physics and the design and development of materials for use in data storage, optics, sensors, and optical and infrared astronomy.Students will learn new materials synthesis via solid state reaction, followed by structural, microscopic, magnetic, thermal, and superconducting characterization of the materials. Students may also perform cantilever micromagnetometry, interferometry, and magnetic resonance microscopy.
