Research Interest:

    We carry out research on solid state materials science with state-of-art facilities. The broad areas of research are namely laboratory and synchrotron-based high-resolution angle-resolved and angle-integrated photoemission spectroscopy of strongly correlated systems, synthesis of new materials and understanding its crystal structure, magnetic & electronic properties, synthesis of novel doped nano-materials and understanding its optical, magnetic, and electronic properties. We are also involved in theoretical calculations/research to understand our own experimental results. Theoretical calculations like Full-potential LAPW and ab-initio pseudopotential band structure calculations are carried out with the high-performance cluster and workstation available in the group.
