AREAS OF TECHNICAL EXPERIENCE:

Films grown by spray pyrolysis technique: HTc superconducting films of YBa2Cu3O7-x and Tl2Ba2Can-1CunO2n+4+x grown by two kinds of spray pyrolysis techniques. The first generates the aerosol pneumatically, the second one generates it by an ultrasonic transducer. Growth of Co:Cr:Fe oxide films for opt ical usage's through the spray pyrolysis technique.

Single Crystal growth through Electrocrystalization: Growth of (Ba, K)BiO3 single crystals cubic superconducting materials.

X-ray analysis of polycrystalline materials. Powder Method and Rietveld Analysis: Analysis of x-ray diffractogramas from polycrystalline bulk and films. Refinement of structures and quantitative phase analysis through Rietveld m ethod.

Electrical Characterization of Superconducting Films: Measurements of resistance vs. temperature by standard AC four-probe method. Determination of thermodynamic fluctuations in superconductors from analysis of the resistance vs. temperature curves.

Optical Characterization (Reflection, Absorption UV-VIS, Photoluminescence) of Solid state Materials: Optical characterization semiconductor materials (ZnSe:I and ZnTe) in the UV-Vis range. Determination of the refractive index a nd absorption coefficient through analysis of the reflection and absorption spectra. Determination of radiative precesses through out photoluminescence technique in semiconducting materials as well as in activator atoms hosted in different insulating matr ices.

Optical characterization of semiconductors by reflectometric method: Determination of the optical constants (index of refraction and absorption coefficient) of semiconductors through a reflectometric method, based on the measure ment of reflected polarized light near the critical angles.

Magnetic Characterization of Superconducting Materials: Study of transport properties under magnetic Field, of Tl2Ba2CaCu2O8 and (Ba, K)BiO3 superconductors. Study of Vortex Dynamics in superconducting materials through different armonic signal of ac susceptibility.
