Our aim is to reveal the microscopic origin of various material properties. Electronic structure constitutes the microscopic origin of all material properties. A solid is a metal, semiconductor, insulator, superconductor or magnet is determined by the electronic interactions. Even the elastic and thermal properties depend on the electronic structure. Thus, we probe the electronic structure using high resolution photoemission spectroscopy and compliment it with theoretical calculations to understand various material properties. This will help in engineering new material of technological interests in addition to its fundamental interests.
- Topological Insulators, Weyl semimetals
- Superconductivity - special attention to Fe-based systems (pnictides, chalcogenides, etc)
- Correlated Electron Systems - Magnetism and Kondo phenomena
- Properties at the surfaces and interfaces
- Electronic structure of thin films and multilayers
- Diluted magnetic semiconductors and nanomaterials
