Jason earns the PhD!

Congratulations to Jason Maldonis on the successful defense of his thesis and earning the PhD in Materials Science! We’ll miss him, but he’s off the bigger challenges in the future.

New papers in spintronics

Congli’s work continues to make it’s way into the literature. Papers he contributed to on Fe16N2, a novel material with high intrinsic perpendicular magnetic anisotropy, and improved performance on CoFeB/MgO magnetic tunnel junctions by capping …

Three new papers

Three new papers: Jason’s paper on the StructOpt structure refinement code has been published. The code is available on GitHub. Congli and Chenyu contributed to a paper on MnO2 nanowires for battery applications, and Paul …

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 …
