Physics and Astronomy Colloquium

Thursday, October 10th 2019
3:35 pm:
Speaker: Bharat Jalan, Associate Professor , CEMS, UMN
Subject: Strain-Engineered Perovskite Oxide Heterostructures with High Mobility

Materials defects are the backbone of modern electronics and the source of emerging physics. In this talk, I will present my group’s effort to understand and control select defects in perovskite oxide thin films and heterostructures. I will discuss their microscopic origin with particular emphasis on the role of point defects on electronic transport in strain-engineered oxide heterostructures yielding a record-high conductivity. I will present how the innovation in synthesis approaches is needed to not only understand the role of defect/disorders but also to create novel ground states via defect management.
