Functionality of Oxide based devices under Electric-field: Towards Atomic-resolution Operando Nanoscopy

Project description

A novel lab-on-a-chip investigates oxygen dynamics during operation of metal-oxide devices

Metal oxide-based nanomaterials are widely used in electronic and optoelectronic devices. Tailoring of their surface properties plays an integral role in performance and application. So-called oxygen vacancies, defects that can be natural or man-made, play a crucial role in the physical properties of metal oxides, and engineering defects has been used to enhance their properties. However, characterising and quantifying the effects of vacancies to better engineer them is challenging. The EU-funded FOXON project will harness the power of microelectromechanical systems to enable unprecedented investigation of metal-oxide devices during device operation with atomic-level precision.
