Research

Research in magnetic materials is currently focussed on two themes:

(i) Multiferroic composite materials with interest in their magnetic properties, the Magneto-Electric effect,  electrical excitation and the interactions between these aspects.  These multifunctional materials are of high interest because of their potential applications in the continuing miniaturisation of technology.

(ii) Magnetic nanoparticles that have potential biomedical, decontamination and catalysis applications.
