  • electromagnetic response in materials
  • complex oxides
  • magnetic refrigeration

Dr. Hari Srikanth directs the Functional Materials Laboratory at USF which is a research facility equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for chemical synthesis of nanoparticles, thin films and studying the electrical and magnetic properties of novel materials. Investigations of the material properties are done over a wide range in temperature (2K < T < 350K) and applied magnetic fields upto 7 Tesla using a Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS). Current research projects focus on studies of dynamic magnetic response and high frequency impedance in nanostructured materials, polymer composites, magneto-dielectric materials, highly spin polarized oxides, magnetocaloric effect and biomedical applications of nanoparticles.
Research activities have been funded over the years from DoE, NSF, ARO
