12/14 – Congratulations to Cole for successfully defending his PhD thesis! He is the first doctoral graduate from the group.

12/14 – Congratulations to Eun Ju, whose new paper on octahedral superstructures in manganite superlattices has been published in Nature Communications.

08/14 – The group has two new papers out in Applied Physics Letters. The first reports on photoexcited carrier dynamics in LaFeO3; the second presents an electronic phase diagram of epitaxial La1-xSrxFeO3films.

07/14 – The 2014 Ross Coffin Purdy Award from the American Ceramic Society has been awarded to Steve and collaborators James Rondinelli and John Freeland. This award, presented for the most valuable contribution to ceramics literature in 2012, is in recognition of our 2012 MRS Bulletin paper.

07/14 – Steve has coauthored a review article on Magnetic Oxide Heterostructures for the latest volume of Annual Review of Materials Research.

06/14 – Rob’s paper on electronic transport behavior in La1/3Sr2/3FeO3 films has been published in Journal of Applied Physics.

06/14 – Congratulations to Yujun “Terry” Xie for defending his MS thesis. Terry will attend Yale in the fall to pursue a PhD.

04/14 – Eun Ju’s paper describing how coupling of octahedral behavior at the film/substrate interface influences the properties of ultrathin LSMO films has been published in Nano Letters.

03/14 – Terry’s paper on low temperature oxidation/reduction of (La,Sr)FeO3-d films as a means to control electronic and optical properties has been published in Advanced Materials.
