Vacancy

Research Scientist or Post doctoral fellow to research in rare earth alloys, to understand and develop materials designed to form hard permanent magnets at elevated temperatures. The research will requirepreparation of the alloys, typically by arc melting, grinding and sintering,and characterization of magnetic properties, magnetic domains, and materialmicrostructures. Mossbauer spectroscopy, together with neutron and X-raydiffraction, will be used to investigate magnetic field interactions, includingthe effects of degradation after repeated heating. Send resume and threereferences to Professor Rama C. Mohanty, Department of Physics, SouthernUniversity and A&M College, Baton Rouge, LA 70813.
