Research in the magnetics laboratory is focused on the synthesis and characterization of new nanomagnetic materials.  Current high efficiency motors utilize rare earth elements which are expensive and have uncertain supply chains.  Our group has developed a new class of magnets which contain no rare earths.   Our goals are to develop this new magnet system for use in renewable energy applications such as power generators and electric motors.  In addition to clean energy applications, we are also interested in the development of other nanoparticle systems for catalysis, biomedical applications, and many other applications.
