  • Synthesis of nanostructured materials, magnetic nano–hetero-structures of metals (Fe, Co), metal alloys (FePt, CoFe), metal oxides (Fe2O3, CoFe2O4, NiO, LaCaMnO4; BaFeO3) and magnetic thin films (CoFe; CoFe/NiO)
  • Design of magnetic nano–hetero-structures (nanoparticles, particles embedded in matrix, core shell structures, hollow nanoparticles, anisometric particles) and the study of their magnetic properties
  • Study on the relationship between physical properties, crystalline structures and morphological features of nanostructured magnetic materials
  • Investigation of fundamental properties of magnetic nanoparticles (static and dynamical properties) with particular interest in materials for applications in biomedicine (MRI, drug delivery, hyperthermia), catalysis, and energy field(permanent magnets, hydrogen production)
