Research Projects

Metal oxides are always multifunctional, and possess colorful properties, from superconducting, semiconducting to dielectric materials; from ferroelectric, magnetic to multiferroics, etc. They have been intensely studied and widely used. I am focusing attention on the nanofabrication of ferroic metal oxides with extraordinary phenomena at the nanoscale, which are excellent candidates in next-generation field sensors and high density memory devices.

  1. Nanopatterning of Etch-Free Functional Oxides via Lift-off Techniques
  2. Sol-gel Derived Nanocomposite Ferroelectic-Magnetic Thin Films with Large Magnetoelectric Effect
  3. Nanoscale Studies of Ferroelectric Domain Motion Induced by Spin-torque Transfer in Multiferroic Materials
