Physics Researcher University of Minnesota

Laboratory for Ozone-Assisted Molecular Beam Epitaxy 2000 – 2013

• Fabricated, characterized, and investigated complex oxide thin films and interfaces.

• Presented results at meetings, reviews, and conferences, and in journal publications.

• Developed, operated, and maintained a state-of-the-art thin film deposition system.

• Improved control and performance, serviced and repaired, communicated with vendors.

• Supervised and trained new members of the research team. Projects and results

Application of the field-effect approach to novel correlated oxide systems.

• Investigated superconductor-insulator transition in electrostatically doped lanthanum cuprate thin films in a novel Electronic Double Layer Transistor configuration employing ionic liquid.

• Explored continuous phase diagram of La2CuO4+δ, including the miscibility gap regions inaccessible using strain or chemical doping.

• Developed and tuned MBE deposition process for fabrication of high quality ultrathin oxide heterostructures with atomically sharp interfaces and superconducting thin films.

• Added differential pumping capability to RHEED system. Upgraded the ozone distillation- collection system and achieved a four-time reduction in the duration of ozone distillation- collection process.

Investigation of exchange bias in epitaxial complex oxide bilayers.

• Achieved a very high-quality of ferromagnet(F)-antiferromagnet(AF) bilayers with chemically sharp and virtually defect-free interfaces between the F and AF layers.

• Investigated the dependence of the exchange bias (EB) on the thickness of the AF layer.

• Determined the lower/upper AF thickness limits, at which the EB effect vanishes/saturates.

• Estimated the interfacial exchange energy and the anisotropy of the AF layer material. Effects of magnetic and electrostatic fields in ultrathin La0.8Ca0.2MnO3 films at low temperature.

• Carried out film growths and magnetic characterization.

• Enabled the success of this team project by providing high-quality samples. MATERIALS ENGINEERING BACKGROUND
