Chao Yun


I started my PhD in October 2014 and funded by the Cambridge International Scholarship (CISS) from Cambridge Trust. I got my Bachelor's Degree in Science from Lanzhou University, China and Master's Degree in Science from Peking University, China.   

My research area includes tuning multi-functionalities using vertically aligned nanocomposites, magnetic and transport properties in oxide thin films. I am interested in Resistive Random Access Memories, Multiferroics and Magnetoelectrics.

My specialties are: growth of epitaxial films using Pulsed Laser Deposition, structural characterization using XRD (proficient in RSM) and AFM, as well as physical properties measurements (using SQUID, PPMS).
