Summary of Research:

  • Study spin-orbit torque in topological materials.
  • Growth of magnetic Weyl semimetal thin films, and develop magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs) with high tunneling magnetoresistance and low power consumption.
  • Development of new spin gapless semiconductor and half-metallic ferromagnetic Heusler alloys and their spintronic applications.
  • MTJs with highly spin polarized equiatomic quaternary Heusler alloys.
