We design and perfect the properties of complex magnetic oxides for electronic uses.
We apply the layering capability of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and pulsed laser deposition (PLD) for the growth of oxide magnets and their integration with semiconductors and into all-oxide hybrids.
We use synchrotron radiation to investigate the electronic properties of oxide hybrids.
Besides XPS, XMCD, XANES and ARPES, we apply the hard X-ray variant of photoemission spectroscopy (HAXPES) to study oxide multilayers and depth-profile functional oxide interfaces.
We interface-engineer oxide heterostructures to control their full spectrum of electronic properties.
We realize magnetic oxide-based nanostructured contacts and study 2D, 3D and tunneling spin-electronic transport in novel all-oxide hybrids.
Our Helmholtz Young Investigators Group "Oxide Spintronics Laboratory" explores the interrelations between magnetism, electronic strutures and spin-related transport phenomena in magnetic oxide materials.
By bridging the gap between materials science, synchrotron radiation-based spectroscopy and nanoscale electronic transport, our research attempts to unlock the rich potential of magnetic oxide hybrids for spintronic applications.
