We study the electronic, magnetic and superconducting properties of materials ranging from high temperature superconductors to the magnetic multilayer materials used in sensitive magnetic field detectors.

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is powerful microscopic probe of local magnetic and structural properties.  In addition to our active research program employing the broad range of conventional NMR techniques, we are developing the Magnetic Resonance Force Microscope, a new, highly sensitive approach involving mechanical detection of magnetic resonance which will enable very high resolution magnetic resonance imaging.
