ABOUT US 

We are a group (feelings is like a family) who believes in hard work, sincerity, discipline. We enjoy our work and have a lot of fun in each of our group activities.

We are working on various research topics in nanomagnetism and spintronics viz.

  • Magnetic domains and domain wall dynamics

  • Superferromagnetism,

  • Magnetic Antidot Lattices (MALs)

  • Antiferromagnetic Spintronics

  • Topological Insulators

  • Flexible spintronics

  • Skyrmionics in thin films

  • Organic spintronics

  • Ferrimgnetic spintronics

  • Spin Pumping via Inverse spin Hall effect (ISHE).

We are always committed to contribute to the scientific community by our novel work.

We have published about 80 papers in different international journals of high repute like

Phys. Rev. Lett., Phys. Rev. B, Phys. Rev. Applied, Scientific reports, Appl. Phys. Lett., J. Appl. Phys., NPG Asia materials, Nanoscale, Advanced Quantum Technology J. Phys. D- Appl. Phys.,

J. Magn. Magn. Mater., RSC advance, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., ACS applied nano materials, J. Phys. Chem. C, Nanotechnology, etc.

 

Our alumni

  • Five Ph.D students have already graduated (now postdocs at IIT Delhi and Université Paris-Saclay, France, THALES, France).

  • Sixteen M.Sc. students have performed their final year MSc thesis (now working at several good places like University of California, USA; Università degli Studi di Torino, Italy; Kansas State University, USA; Martin Luther Universität Halle Wittenberg, Halle, Germany; Michigan State University, USA; University of New Mexico, USA; Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany etc.)

 

Present Group: 3 post docs, 7 PhD students, 1 Int. PhD and 3 M.Sc. students.

Opportunities: Highly motivated students (both masters and PhD) and postdocs are always encouraged to join and work in our group.
