Transition metal oxides are considered to be the building blocks for effi cient and energy friendly, data storage, advanced computing and energy harvesting devices. We are enthusiastically committed and contributing in:
Exploit orbital physics and interface engineering to induce emerging properties
Exploring oxides for data storage, communications and light harvesting
Strain engineering of magnetic properties
Searching and understanding multiferroic materials
Integrating ferroelectric and ferromagnetic oxides on Silicon
Beyond oxides: tailoring electronic properties with nitrides
The use of molecules in electronic devices is arousing enormous interest due to their unique advantages for designing tailored functional materials, compatibility with low-cost production processes, biocompatibility and biodegradability. We focus on the fabrication of electronic devices which can have a strong impact on societal well-being related to technological advances and health. The devices are developed considering a holistic perspective including: design and synthesis of the molecules, structural, morphological and electronic characterisation, device fabrication and integration, and theory prediction and rationalization.
RL5: Bioactive Materials for Therapy and Diagnosis
