Research Interest

The electromagnetic and thermodynamic properties of a variety of novel low dimensional systems are investigated for the purpose of studying the underlying quantum mechanical phenomena. From room temperature down to the millikelvin temperature range, the research focuses on low dimensional organic and inorganic conductors and magnets, nanostructured antiferromagnetic particles, and novel superconducting and heavy fermion materials. The millikelvin research is extended to the microkelvin regime when the behavior of the systems requires further clarification. In addition, superfluid 3He is studied at microkelvin temperatures using ultrasonic techniques. Finally, biophysical research involves the study of plants growing in low gravity environments generated by magnetic levitation and the influence of strong magnetic fields on gene expression.
