Magnetic Characterization of Materials

Dr. Lowell E. Wenger,, 934-8659

Our research program focuses on characterization of a variety materials including nanowires, nanaoparticles, rare earth metals, and superconductors. Most recently we are expanding our magnetic studies to high pressures (~15 GPa) using a diamond anvil cell with our Quantum Design SQUID magnetometer.
