Here, I am working on magnetic oxide film. I was involved in the deposition of Ferrites and Garnets films by liquid phase epitaxy technique. The characterisation involves low temperature magnetic studies. I was involved to do Ion-Implantation on this film and study the Effect of Ion-implantation on these film.The investigation is carried out with I.I.T. Bombay and T.I.F.R Bombay group. I am also involved in the study of nanostructured Ferrites for Recording and Biomedical application and CMR-GMR materials for Sensor applications.
