Condensed Matter Experiment
Research interests are focused on the fabrication and characterization of thin-film structures and are based on the recognition that unusual physical phenomena occur in restricted dimensions and at interfaces. Systems under study include metals, composites, semiconductors, dielectrics, magnetic films, superconductors and complex oxides. Current research as a member of the Center for Molecular Magnetic Quantum Materials (M2QM) at the University of Florida is focused on the fabrication and characterization of thin films and thin-film heterostructures incorporating chemically fragile single-molecule magnets into the interface regions of heterogeneous junctions comprising semiconductors and/or two-dimensional layered materials.
