Congli Sun and Pei Zhang have defended their theses and earned the PhD. Congli joins previous Voyles group alumnus Feng Yi at Nanolab Technologies in San Jose, CA and Pei has joined Lam Research in Portland, OR.
Congratulations to both of them! We appreciate all the great discoveries, hard work, and good discussions. Good luck in the future!
Ashutosh’s paper on Co2MnSi / GaAs interfaces has appeared in PRB. Our first paper of 2018 – congratulations, Ashutosh!
Congli contributed to a recent paper on voltage-controlled perpendicular magnetic anisotropy which has just been published. He showed that O moves under bias in GdO/Co/Pt multilayers, creating interfacial oxidized Co layers, which are likely responsible for the large PMA. His work has implications for the switching speed and ultimate scalability of magnetic memory and logic elements based on voltage-controlled PMA.
Paul wrote a review on data and image science in materials microscopy that has appeared in Current Opinion in Solid State and Materials Science.
Pei has published a new paper on the applications and limitations of electron correlation microscopy to the study of liquid state dynamics at the nanoscale. Congratulations Pei!
Congli has contributed to a paper just published in Journal of Applied Physics on perpendicular magnetic tunnel junctions created using W seed and capping layers. These junctions are more thermally stable than perpendicular junctions based on Ta.
Jason has completed the first official release of the FEMSIM / HRMC code. The code is described in the a recent paper and is available in an associated data set. Working versions and updates will be posted on Github.
Ashutosh has contributed to a new paper on Heusler alloy / GaAs spin valves which has appeared in Physical Review B. This is the last Voyles group paper of 2016. Happy New Year!
Yizhang and Li have contributed to a new paper on the evolution of point defect clusters in irradiated SiC, which is our first paper of 2017!
Congli contributed to a paper on thin films of the antiferromagnetic insulator Tm3Fe5O12 that has just appeared in Advanced Electronic Materials. These films have potential applications in spintronics.
