Novel Phenomena at perovskite interfaces and superlattices


Project Description

Superlattices of perovskite oxides often have properties distinguished from their bulk phases. Investigation of these properties is at the​ forefront of modern condensed matter physics and materials science. In particular, after the observation of a highly mobile two-dimensional electron gas at the interface between LaAlO3 and SrTiO3, engineered interfaces are emerging as new horizon for various applications. Using the density functional theory, the project aims at determining the magnetic, electronic, and optical properties of possible perovskite interfaces and superlattices. ​​​​​​​
