Honors and Awards
European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) Graduate Student Award (1998).
1.†† †In-situ Scanning Probe Microscopy of Complex Oxides.† †
In-situ UHV scanning probe microscopy techniques are used to study surfaces of complex oxide thin films grown by Pulsed Laser Deposition/ Laser MBE.
2.†† †Near-field scanning microwave microscopy.
We apply and develop near-field scanning microwave microscopy to study local electrical properties of a broad class of material: dielectrics, semiconductors, two-dimensional conductors (such as graphene), and structures based on these materials.
