Academic Interests and Plans
Our research interests and activities are mainly in the areas of solid-state inorganic and organic-inorganic hybrid materials that possess interesting and useful properties. We have explored and developed a number of synthetic routes effective for crystal growth of these materials over a wide range of temperatures (RT-1700 C). Our recent work focuses largely on the projects briefly described below. Both experimental and theoretical methods are employed to study the structures, chemical, physical, and electronic properties of these systems.
