DCG receives ONR grant to study in situ biasing of multiferroics and GaN-based devices

Dr. Taheri has recently received a grant from the Office of Naval Research to pursue novel in situ electrical biasing TEM studies of multiferroics and GaN-based devices. These materials exhibit strain-mediated coupling between electrical and magnetic order parameters, but the factors influencing this coupling are poorly understood. New dynamic TEM imaging during electrical biasing will allow the group to probe the mechanisms underlying this behavior.
