Graduate student openings

The Voyles group anticipates openings for new graduate students for Fall 2019 in the areas of electron microscopy of glasses and glass-forming liquids, especially metals, and in 4D STEM characterization of materials, especially using machine …

Big papers update

Lots of new papers added to the group bibliography! Congli contributed to papers reporting the first demonstration of ferromagnetism in Ru, creating synthetic antiferromagnets, using TiO2 to protect photocathodes, new electrodes for Zn ion batteries, and …

Congli and Pei defend theses

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 …

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 …

paper on perpendicular MTJs

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 …
