Sasha’s Thesis Defense

Congratulations to Sasha on a successful thesis defense on “Electrical Detection of Antiferromagnetic Switching in Epitaxial Insulating Oxide”!!!

Goodbye Mantao

We wish Mantao, a PhD graduate and then postdoc in our group, good luck in his next postdoc in Professor Bilge Yildiz’s group. Hopefully we will get to see you around!

Goodbye Angela

Angela, one of our postdocs, is leaving the group to start a group of her own at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz! Her group will be part of the experimental Condensed Matter Physics (KOMET) team in the Department of Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science.
