Dr. Falak Sher, LUMS faculty publishes an article on Chemistry of Materials

researchers from LUMS and the University of Edinburgh, UK

LUMS faculty Dr. Falak Sher at the Department of Chemistry, Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE), has recently published a research article in Chemistry of Materials. Chemistry of Materials is a top quality daybook in Chemical Sciences, published by the American Chemical Society.

Dr. Sher’s article describes detailed structural analysis and physical properties of SrCr1-xFexO3-y perovskite systems. Perovskites are technologically important because of their unique properties, e.g. high-TC superconductivity, colossal magnetoresistance (CMR), mixed electron and oxygen ion conductivity, and rich magnetic conduct. The inquired perovskites are of potential interest as mixed conductors for solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFC) anodes, CMR materials for magnetic data storage and other spintronics devices.

The results show that these materials are semiconducting and order ferrimagnetically below 225-342 K. This is a first detailed study on such useful perovskite materials.

This article base on collaboration between researchers from LUMS and the University of Edinburgh, UK.
