dc.description.abstractThis thesis is in two parts: First part relates to tuning of the granular magneto-resistance (MR), which naturally occurs in systems consisting of ferromagnetic (FM) metallic grain and antiferromagnetic (AFM)/ insulating grain boundary(GB).We have explored Ni-NiO system with varying grain size and morphology. Magneto-resistance (MR) measurements on various samples have been made using standard four probe resistivity technique. Low eld MR data shows an anomaly at 250 K in Ni-NiO sample with crystalline hexagonal Ni plates. This is likely to be due to the variations in the grain size as well as the magnetic interactions between the FM grain and the AFM GB. In second part of thesis, synthesis, characterization and magnetization measurements on a relatively unexplored layered 4d magnetic oxide, SrRu2O6 are presented. Graphene like 2-D sheets of this oxide have been obtained using the technique of "Liquid Exfoliation" for the rst time. Same technique has also been employed to obtain 2-D sheets of Na2IrO3 as well. Preliminary measurements reveal micron sized sheets in case of SrRu2O6, and nano scale rectangular sheets in case of Na2IrO3 with signi cant yield. Exfoliation process in these two samples has been checked for reproducibility and yield factor for multiple times. Further experiments are required to obtain the layer thickness and composition in each case. Thermo-remnant magnetization (TRM) data on the bulk samples show nite remanence which hints toward the possibility of magneto-strictive e ects in both the systems.en_US
