Research Statement


Most of Dr. Jana´s projects revolve around intermetallics as these tend to be particularly susceptible to aperiodic phenomena. Their structure determinations have posed exciting crystallographic problems: superstructures, modulation, twinning, quasicrystalline order, etc. A state-of-the-art crystallographic method, such as superspace modeling is employed to solve these challenges. In the recent past, quite a few incommensurately modulated structures have successfully modeled. To understand the stability of synthesized phases, electronic structure calculations and chemical bonding analysis in real space are performed. Currently research scholars working in the group have been working on various complexes intermetallic phases in Zn-, Cd- and Pd-rich systems.
