Congratulations to Davide, a joint Heron and Goldman student, for winning second place at the 2016 American Vacuum Society (AVS) conference in Nashville, Tennessee! Davide’s poster was titled “Quantum Enoki Mushrooms”. Davide also contributed to the conference with an oral presentation. He presented work on the synthesis of indium tin oxide nanowires by pulsed laser deposition.
Useful Programs: http://mybinder.org:/repo/meisep/ferroelectronicsprograms The Stoner-Wohlfarth Model describes the hysteresis of single domain ferromagnets when an electric field is applied at some angle θ from the easy axis. An interactive python code to quantitatively simulate this hysteresis is available from the depository above. The reciprocal lattice of a crystal represents the Fourier transform of real space […]
Recent work on new room temperature multiferroics is highlighted by Nature and the University of Michigan! Our collaborative work with UC Berkeley and Cornell University was recently highlighted in Nature: News and Views by Manfred Fiebig and by the University of Michigan! The highlights are in regards to the work recently published in Nature (“Atomically engineered ferroic […]
The lab has received new deposition and characterization equipment courtesy of IMRA America! Donated to our lab was: 3 Thermionics PLD-PVD deposition chambers. 1 thermal evaporator and power supply. A Van der Pauw and Hall effect measurement system. Solar performance testing station. A plethora of deposition materials in 1 -2 in targets. 3 sputtering guns […]
The lab welcomes: Thomas Kratofil Jesse Newton Andrew Williamson Jiawei Zhang These students are already learning how to safely work in a PLD lab, building laser enclosures, making targets and soon to be depositing materials! Welcome guys! Be safe, have fun and and may the oxygen octahedral be with you in all your endeavors.
