Proximity devices from functional materials

This interdisciplinary research project between Tafti lab and Burch lab aims to functionalize layered superconducting and magnetic materials by incorporating them in devices. The project requires the student to make new materials and use them to fabricate new devices by means of micromechanical exfoliation. The goal is to make heterostructures between superconducting and magnetic layered compounds and study their transport and optical properties.
