Specialized Materials Science Laboratory

Upon diving into a very small world of particles, fascinating and extraordinary properties emerge. As well as cooling down to low temperatures, a new phenomenon arises: superconductivity. Our main goal is to understand the physics behind this mystery; and elucidate the transport and mechanical properties of nanomaterials and superconductors.

This research lab helped more than 15 students to gain their graduation. Currently, 24 students are running their experiments, following their passion and stimulating their curiosity with the results. Here are some of the research topics investigated:

  • Structural and electrical investigations of pure and rare earth (Er and Pr)-doped NiO nanoparticles.
  • Electrical and mechanical properties of Mn2O3 nanoparticles / SmBa2Cu3O7-δ composite.
  • Improving the dielectric behavior of NiO nanoparticles by Samarium doping for electromagnetic applications.
  • Synthesis, characterization, and electrical properties of hybrid mono-iron-substituted undecatungstosilicate/(Bi,Pb)-2223 phase superconductors.
  • Influence of lead fluoride on the mechanical properties of (Cu0.5Tl0.5): 1223 Phase.
  • Physical and dielectric properties of MnFe2O4 doped by Mo.
