Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert is internationally renowned in the field of superconducting and magnetic materials, metal hydrides, and magnetic recording. He has developed new metallic media for recording and has done extensive research on structures superconductive and magnetic properties of metallic systems.

high-temperature superconductivity


magnetic material


superconducting material

Expert's research has centered on partial substitutions in YBa2Cu3O7 and related materials. He employs XRD, Mossbauer, magnetometry, and studies the thermodynamics of ceramic superconductors. He identified flux pinning through magnetic ordering and novel dead layers with lattice match. He has become very involved with high temperature (Tc) ceramic superconductors, including their preparation, and their thermodynamic and electronic properties.

ceramic superconductor

Expert's research group synthesized new materials with a focus on hydrogen cycling capability near ambient. They studied their electrochemical, thermodynamic, and corrosion resistance and introduced new processing techniques involving partial decompositions under reactive gases.



metal hydride

Expert research team studies thin films of Co-Cr and their characterization by TEM, Mossbauer spectroscopy, and magnetometry.

magnetic record


thin-film magnetic property

Expert is an expert on the origin of magnetic anisotropy and coercivity. He has maximized intrinsic magnetic hardness to record values and has analyzed giant intrinsic magnetic hardness on models involving probability distributions of local environments and thermal activation.

magnetic property

Expert is also well versed in the fields of sputter deposition, rare earth alloys, high temperature superconductors, and X-ray diffraction. He has industrial experience in adiabatic magnetic cooling.
