Taheri and Colleagues Awarded NSF Grant for Oxide Research

Dr. Taheri (PI) and Assistant Professor Steven May (Co-PI) of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) are the recipients of a new $290,268 three-year National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, “Multiscale Correlation of Magnetism and Microstructure at Iron/Oxide Interfaces.”

In this project, candidate oxide coatings for iron powder-based electromagnetic devices, prepared by molecular beam epitaxy, will be identified by investigating the magnetic and structural properties of oxide-Fe interfaces in the form of thin film heterostructures. The work funded by this grant is strategically targeted towards next generation materials and processing necessary for the future direction of electromagnetic devices, in particular applications for the automotive, wind, and aerospace sectors.
