Research

Working on:

Ferroelectric thin-films: epitaxial- and textured Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 and Ba(Sr,Ti)O3 thin films.
Multiferroics thin-films: epitaxial BiFeO3 and Pb(Zr,Ti)O3/La(Sr,Mn)O3 thin films.
Heterolayered structure and Doping thin films.
Thin-film orientation control.
Interfacial layers.
Ferroelectric thin-film fabrications: Pulsed laser deposition and Sol-gel spin coating.
Piezoelectric devices: Micro-diaphragms and Micro-cantilevers for micro-fluidic pumps and micro-biosensors applications; High-resonance frequency resonators for sonar applications.
