Background and activities
Completed a Master's at the MTNANO study program at NTNU during the spring of 2016. The topic of my thesis was TEM Characterization of BTO/LSMO/STO(111) thin film oxide heterostructures.
Started as a PhD candidate during the fall of 2016. In my project I will utilize Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) techniques to characterize the ferroelectric and multiferroic domain structure in different hexagonal manganites. These domain walls are naturally occurring interfaces which exhibit several interesting properties. Furthermore, these walls can be erased, written and moved on demand. This work is part of an effort to develop novel 2D materials for future electronics, and the long-term goal is to investigate how these materials can be used in new model systems serving as transistors, diodes, 2D gates or other electronic components.
