JALAN MBE LAB

 

ABOUT US

Our group focuses on exploiting electronic, magnetic and dielectric properties of thin films and heterostructures of “model” complex oxides (based on titanates and stannates) for both fundamental study and technological applications in energy, communication and information technology. We employ advanced state-of-art hybrid molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) technique for thin film growth, direct and complimentary tools (x-ray diffraction, scanning probe microscopy, advanced electron microscopy, spectroscopy techniques) for structural characterization and physical property measurement system for low temperature transport and magnetic measurements.























Complex oxides with perovskite structure (ABO3, where A and B are metal cations) display impressive multi-functionality, encompassing high temperature superconductivity, colossal magnetoresistance, multiferroicity, and strongly-correlated Mott-Hubbard insulator-type behavior. Moreover, interfaces formed from these materials display interface-stabilized ground states (such as two-dimensional electron gases (2DEGs), 2D superconductivity, novel magnetism), which do not exist in the bulk constituents. In addition, many of these phenomena have been found to be extremely sensitivity to composition, defects, interface structure and external stimuli (electric, magnetic field, temperature, etc). Our group exploits these aspects to the behavior of these materials to study fundamental physics and to design novel devices with additional means to control functionality.
