The research involves the study of spin-torque oscillators based on quantum materials. The aim is to explore oscillations based on transition metal oxides with competing electronic phases (e.g. metal/insulating, magnetic/non-magnetic, etc.) with applications to neuromorphic computing.
The successful candidate will characterize spin oscillators using high-speed/frequency electrical test stands and fabricate appropriate samples using electron beam lithography. Experience with electronic transport, magnetic measurements, magnetic materials, microwave techniques and nanofabrication is desirable. The candidate will work with a multi-university team with expertise in quantum materials and magnetic modelling, Good communication and interpersonal skills are essential.
