Magnetic Nanostructures

(Supported by NIH-CCNE, NSF-MWN, NSF-INT, NMH, ENH, NNIN)

 

Magnetic Nanostructures (MNS) offer unique properties such as superparamagnetism, RF induced thermal activation, catalysis, electrochemical cycling, and biocompatibility). We synthesize a family of MNS and their composites, characterize them, and explore the physical and chemical properties to design better materials for a variety of applications from energy to environment to biomedicine. Some of the areas we focus are
