What we do
We are an experimental physics group who aim to probe the fundamental nature of multiferroics, employing a wide range of techniques. A combination of our various Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) systems combined with a plethora of characterisation methods, and advanced photolithography techniques allows us to not only produce thin film samples, but to fully characterise them and then design and create devices with them. This comes with a strong ethos that all students can take a substrate all the way through to a functional (functional in every sense of the word) device.
