Research Interests:The main topic of interest in research is the Electronic and Magnetic Mechanisms in Low Dimensional and Novel Materials. This activity involves the investigation of the role of electronic anisotropy in molecular crystalline materials. The area of molecular crystals is an emerging area in the science and technology of electronic (conducting) materials. They link the realms of semiconductors, metals, and biological structures. Unlike traditional solids such as silicon or copper which are composed of regular arrays of atoms in a three dimensional ordered array, molecular crystals are composed of large (usually organic) molecules arranged in either chains or layers. Hence the electronic properties of molecular crystals can be very different (anisotropic) in the three directions in the crystal structure. This anisotropy affects superconductivity, magnetism, and semi-conductor properties of these materials. An understanding of the mechanisms involved will lead to the design and synthesis of new materials in this class with particularly desirable physical properties. The purpose of the research, is to experimentally and computationally investigate the role of anisotropy in these materials. The methods include the use of electronic, magnetic, pressure, and optical probes to measure and manipulate their physical properties. Computational methods are also employed to predict trends in the changes in physical properties.
