Symposium EL06-Complex Oxide Epitaxial Thin Films—From Synthesis to Microelectronics

The interplay between charge, spin, lattice, and orbital degrees of freedom in strongly correlated oxide materials leads to a wide range of emergent quantum phenomena. This symposium covers recent advances in the synthesis and characterization of complex oxide thin films, heterostructures, superlattices and vertical nanocomposites, strain/microstructure/property correlation and their applications towards microelectronics. Topics of interest include epitaxy of complex oxides, stabilization, heterointerface engineering, emergent interfacial properties, new materials discovery, advanced characterizations, and device applications. Contributions that connect advances in synthesis science to structure and property trends are of particular interest, as are those which link theoretical/computational and experimental efforts.

The goal of this symposium is to bring together international and interdisciplinary researchers with an interest in epitaxial thin films to exchange ideas and foster collaboration. The topics listed for this symposium reflect the needs and opportunities of strongly correlated oxide thin films towards the applications in quantum information science and microelectronics.

Topics will include:

  • The growth and characterization of complex oxide epitaxial thin films, heterostructures, superlattices and nanocomposites
  • Defect, strain and interface engineering in complex oxide thin films
  • Magnetism, ferroelectricity, multiferroicity and superconductivity
  • (Strain, entropy and interface) stabilized thin films
  • Synthesis and characterization of metastable materials in thin film form
  • Structure-property correlation
  • Phase changing materials in thin film form
  • Theoretical simulation and modelling of oxide heterostructures
  • Emergent interface phenomena and defects
  • Free-standing membranes and functionalities
  • Advanced characterization of structural and functional properties in complex oxide thin films by atomic/piezo force microscopy, electron microscopy, neutron scattering, and synchrotron radiation
  • Oxide thin films based spintronic and electronic devices
  • Oxide thin film based emergent devices for novel computing
