Our research is focused on synthesis, characterization of high quality materials such as complex oxides, and chalcogenides, and devices made from these materials for applications in energy and electronics. More specifically, we are interested in materials synthesized in the thin film form such as heterostructures, superlattices etc. Typically, the materials of interest are grown by Pulsed Laser Deposition with in-situ, real-time structural and chemical characterization methods such as reflection high energy electron diffraction (RHEED), and Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES) respectively, to observe the evolution of the growth process at the atomic scale. Brief description of some of the topics of research are provided in detail through the links. The theme of the research group is summarized below:
