Project Details


Background Part of the research focus in the synchrotron radiation studies group in MSD is understanding the synthesis behavior of complex oxide thin films with the aid of in situ synchrotron techniques. We have begun a collaboration with Prof. Laurence Marks, an expert in oxide surfaces and professor in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at Northwestern University. Our aim to make fundamental discoveries in understanding the growth of complex oxide thin films by oxide molecular beam epitaxy (MBE). This work order is to fund Tassie Andersen who will be jointly supervised by Dr. Dillon Fong at Argonne and Prof. Laurence Marks at Northwestern. The individual will focus on understanding the synthesis of complex oxide films by MBE. Tasks The task is for the individual to engage in forefront research in the study of complex oxide thin film synthesis. The experimental program will be carried out primarily at ANL. Deliverables The deliverables will be joint publications and the exchange of information from different analytical techniques.
