LaAlO3 and SrTiO3 are two well known non‐magnetic insulators, but when LaAlO3 is deposited on SrTiO3 to form a clean LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interface, the interface becomes an ultra‐thin sheet of conductor. Even more surprisingly, the interface exhibits unusual magnetic properties, but the origin of the observed interfacial magnetism is under debate.
Discovery: We have observed a large inverse spin-Hall effect (ISHE) in ZnO films grown using Pulsed Laser Deposition. This discovery provides an entirely new means of measuring spin currents in semiconductors.
Epitaxial graphene may transform the computing and communications industry.
In collaboration with the Research Triangle MRSEC, a team from NC State University was awarded a grant from the NSF-MRI program for the purchase of an
Guided by hierarchical materials design principles evolved by bacteria, which include the use of curvature-induced strain to dynamically position amphiphiles, proteins and other biomolecules within single cells, IRG3 of the Wisconsin MRSEC has recently recapitulated these design principles
The IRG has developed a new material, GaAs1-y-zPyBiz, as an alternative to the nitride–based bismide materials, specifically GaAs1-y-zBiyNz.
Objective: Develop plasmonic structures in which the
