Our group’s research is directed towards the following areas:
- Fabrication of magnetic films, multilayers and small magnetic structures, with applications in magnetic logic, magnetic random access memory, hard disks, and bit-patterned media.
- Magnetooptical oxides, including perovskites and garnets, for use in integrated optical components such as magnetooptical isolators.
- Multiferroic and magnetoelectric single-phase and multi-phase oxide thin films, with applications in novel memory and storage devices.
- Self-assembly of block copolymers, with particular application to nanolithography.
We maintain a Thin Film Laboratory that house pulsed laser deposition systems and an ultra-high vacuum sputter system, in addition to a range of magnetic, magnetooptical, and magnetoelectric characterization equipment.
