Oxides for nanoionic devices

MOCVDThe research in our group focuses on the preparation, characterization and optimization of oxide thin films for applications in the nanoionics field. We are specialized in the deposition of perovskites and layered perovskite-related oxides (with Ruddlesden-Popper structure) by Pulsed Injection Metal Organic Chemical Vapour Deposition (MOCVD) .

We are interested in the study of ion conducting and mixed ionic-electronic conducting (MIEC) oxides as promising candidates for several microtechnology applications, such as micro Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (μ-SOFC), neuromorphic computing systems and non-volatile ReRAM memory devices (valence change memories).

Our main aim is to understand the relationship between the structural, physico-chemical and functional properties of single films and engineered multilayers. In particular we focus on tuning the ion transport and surface exchange, and the electrical and resistive switching properties of these oxide heterostructures. For this we combine the use of a large number of lab-based chemical, structural and electrochemical characterization techniques, with advance in-situ and operando characterization in large scale Synchrotron facilities.
