MuStMAM Project

Tuhin is presently working on EU H2020 funded Marie-Curie project MuStMAM. The aim of the project is to investigate multistate memory originating from ferroic coupling in strongly correlated electron systems. The thin-film heterostructures are prepared by pulsed laser deposition in the group. Their electrical and magnetic properties are investigated in Cambridge's Royce facilities in the Cavendish Laboratory as well as in the group.  Please see below for the publications originating from the project.
