Group strategy

The group has as strategy: development of existent research directions and the start of new directions in the nanocrystalline/nanostructurated material field; Participation in national and European competition in order to obtain grants; Infrastructure improvement and access at access at other national and European facilities increase of scientific visibility.


Areas of expertise
Nanocrystalline and nanocomposite magnetic powders production by mechanical alloying/milling, production of bonded magnets, sintered magnetic materials (soft and hard), obtaining of nanocrystalline compacts (composite and sintered SPS), consulting in magnetic materials field, materials characterisation, structural, morphological and thermal analysis (X-ray diffraction, SEM + EDX, DTA, DSC+TG).


National and International Collaborations
The group has scientific collaboration and facilities for experiments and magnetic/structural measurements at: 

Babes-Bolyai University Cluj-Napoca (Brucker D8 diffractometer, magnetic susceptibility balance, electrical resistivity measurements, etc.), 

S.C. Sinterom S.A. (sintering furnaces), 

Joseph Fourier University, Grenoble and Neel Institute, CNRS, Grenoble (TEM, magnetic measurements up to 3 K and in fields up to11 T, DSC, dynamic magnetic measurements at medium and high frequency, etc.), 

Rouen University (Mossbauer spectrometry). 

The group has as well collaborations with INCDFTM Bucharest, ICPE-CA Bucharest, INCDTIM Cluj-Napoca, IFT Iasi, and other international scientific contacts with researchers from France, Spain, Italy, Greece and Slovakia.
