Research Activity

  • Superconductivity: Magnetic and Thermodynamics properties.
  • Semiconductors: magnetic properties of ZnO doped with transition metals.
  • Magnetic properties of Glasses and Spin-Glasses, induced anisotropy, and reentrant behavior.
  •  Bio-magnetism: Effects of gas-adsorption Magnetic properties of blood.
  • Magnetic properties of nanostructure.

  Instrumentation and experimental skills:

·         Designed and built vibrating sample magnetometer for measuring 2 and 3-dimentional vector magnetization.                        

  • Rotational Magnetization processes.                                     

·         SQUID magnetometer.

·         Designed new ac technique for vortex shaking in superconductors.

·          Designed and built various new experiments and demonstrations for graduate and undergraduate teaching labs.
