Pei’s paper on metallic glass liquids published!

Pei’s paper using electron correlation microscopy to study dynamics in metallic glass forming liquids  has been published in Nature Communications! Congratulations to Pei, Jason, and our co-authors Ze Liu and Jan Schroers on an excellent piece of work.

This paper also marks our first use of the Materials Data Facility to make the data associated with our work permanently and freely available to all investigators. The data for this paper live at the DOI: 10.18126/M2GW5F. Thanks to MDF for making it possible for us to disseminate large data sets like these.

Paper on electrically-controlled PMA

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.
