Incorporation of Magnetic Ions in TaS2 Nanowires
Previous studies by our group seem to have determined the correct reaction conditions to repeatably grow TaS2 nanowires. The research I am conducting incorporates magnetic ions such as iron, manganese, and chromium into these nanowires. We have measured various properties of the bulk materials, but now would like to see how the magnetic structures would change if the distribution was in the nanowires.
