Our research group studies the interplay of electronic, magnetic, and structural properties in tailored complex material systems tuned by composition, doping, and epitaxial strain. Understanding these complex interactions will result in the next generation of magnetic and electronic materials.
The proposed research is highly multidisciplinary and sits at the interface of scientific interest and technological applications, making each research project capable of funding for both basic research (NSF, DOE) and directed applications (DOD, industrial partnerships).
Hauser group gratefully acknowledges funding support from the Army Research office, supporting collaboration with the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical and Biological Center. Learn more about Edgewood.
We are currently seeking motivated graduate students. If interested, please see our Prospective Members page.
