We, as a group, learn, explore, and make discoveries together.
Our current research interests are low dimensional complex oxides and their interface with organic semiconductors.

 A experimental review of hexagonal rare earth ferrites

Hexagonal rare earth ferrites are a new class of magnetoelectric multiferroic material. They simultaneously exhibit spontaneous electric and magnetic polarizations; this suggests promising application in information storage and processing.  See more details: Morden Phys. Lett. B 28, 1430008 (2014).

 

 Structural origin of the magnetic structure in h-LuFeO3

What's the orgin of the weak ferromagnetism in h-LuFeO3? Using combined theoretical and experimental studies, we have elucidate that the low temperature weak ferromagnetism orginates from a structural change. See more details: Phys. Rev.  B. 90 014436 (2014).

 

 

 Organic spin valve that's tunable by an electric field

Organic spin valves are like swtiches that can be turned on and off using a magnetic field. In our recent study, we demonstrated that it can also be tuned using an electric field, by inserting an ferroelectric layer in the structure. See more details: Nat. Comm. 5, 4396 (2014).
