LATTE Lab receives NSF grant to study 2D Materials

YIG_MoS2_sandwichThe National Sci­ence Foun­da­tion (NSF) ‘s Emerg­ing Fron­tiers in Research and Inno­va­tion (EFRI) pro­gram awarded the  LATTE lab with a multi-year grant.  Over the next four years, the project “Novel Switch­ing Phe­nom­ena in Atomic Het­erostruc­tures for Mul­ti­func­tional Appli­ca­tions” will explore and exploit novel mate­r­ial prop­er­ties of   of van der Waals (vdW) mate­ri­als for elec­tronic device appli­ca­tions. The 2014 awards for Two-dimensional Atomic-layer Research and Engi­neer­ing, were given to nine teams in the U.S. The Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, River­side (UCR) team is led by Alexan­der Balandin with co-PIs Roger Lake, Alexan­der Khi­tun, and Uni­ver­sity of Georgia’s Tina Salguero. The LATTE lab will lead the work in mate­ri­als and device the­ory, mod­el­ing, and sim­u­la­tion. Our lab will explore the elec­tronic, vibra­tional, and mag­netic prop­er­ties of het­ero­lay­ers of 2D mate­ri­als such as the MoS2/YIG/MoS2 “sand­wich” (pic­tured above).
