Research Areas

Our primary focus is on the study of unconventional and disordered superconductors using a variety of techniques such as, scanning tunneling spectroscopy, planar junction spectroscopy, penetration depth measurements, magnetotransport and Hall Effect measurements. The lab is equipped with various cryostats capable of measurements down to 300mK and up to a magnetic field of 12 Tesla. We currently perform scanning tunneling spectroscopy down to 2.6K in home-built scanning tunneling microscope fitted with an in-situ sputter deposition chamber for fabrication of thin films. In addition, we have various deposition facilities for the deposition of superconducting thin films. When we are not studying superconductors, we dabble with ferromagnets and other correlated electron materials. One of our interests in recent years has been the study of spin polarization and spin fluctuations using Point Contact Andreev Reflection
