Device Materials Group

The research conducted in the Device Materials Group spans a range of disciplines, from electrocalorics to functional oxides.




The Device Materials Group has extensive facilities for the fabrication of thin films and hetero-structures of many different materials. Films are produced using magnetron sputtering (DC or RF) or pulsed laser deposition. The DMG film growth fleet consists of more than a dozen UHV deposition systems and three high power KrF excimer lasers.

The device materials group also has a wide array of facilities for electrical and magnetic characterization of thin films and devices, and work is focused on 4 key areas – interplay of Superconductivity and ferromagnetism, multiferroics, solar cells and functional thin films.
