in solid state inorganic chemistry include the deposition of crystalline and morphous thin films,growth of single crystals, fabrication of nanocomposite glasses, and exploration of novel electronic, magnetic and optical materials. The focus of this research includes synthesis and atomic structure determination and is enhanced by collaboration to characterize physical properties.
