Welcome to the Nanostructured Magnetic Materials Research Group led by Prof. J. Ping Liu at University of Texas at Arlington.


Research Focus

The significant increase of applications of advanced materials has created a great demand for deliberate exploration to nanostructured magnetic materials. Our group is currently working on hard and soft magnets spanning all four dimensions -  nanoparticles (0D), nanorods and nanowires (1D), thin films and multilayers (2D), and nanostructured bulk magnets (3D).


In the Middle of Difficulty Lies Opportunity

Physical and chemical synthesis of nanoparticles provides many opportunities toward discoveries in materials world
