Dr. Mikel Holcomb
West Virginia University U.S.A
Dr. Holcombâ€™s research focuses on the high-quality growth and novel characterization of strongly correlated systems. In these materials, there is a strong competition between the electric and magnetic properties, which can cause unique behavior, often useful for various technologies (e.g. computing, magnetic sensing, optical devices). We primarily focus on the effect of interface properties on bulk and coupling phenomena, such as magnetic dead layers (the loss of magnetism near the interface or surface) and magnetoelectricity (electric control of magnetism or vice versa). We take advantage of ultrafast optical and synchrotron techniques to provide depth-dependent information on atomic valence, magnetization and symmetry. Dr. Mikel Holcomb investigated a certain class of materials called multiferroics that show promising device applications, particularly for future computers. In these materials, one can change magnetic fields with electric fields or vice versa. Current computers use magnetic domains for the 0ï¿½s and 1ï¿½s for information storage and communication. These domains are changed by magnetic fields. The issue is that the large magnetic fields that are required to change these progressively smaller and smaller bits require a lot of power, are slow, and are hard to localize. If one can use electric fields instead, we do not have all of these problems and could therefore possibly make smaller, faster, more energy efficient devices. Micky Holcomb will expand upon this research by studying complex oxides surfaces and interfaces. In addition, Micky is looking forward to developing mentoring connections between faculty and students at many levels. By grouping students of many ages, younger students can learn from slightly advanced peers and older students can develop mentoring skills. Mentoring has proven to improve interest and skills in scientific areas for both the mentor and the mentored.
