Research team writes perspective paper published in Journal of Applied Physics

An united “perspective paper” by a  team of Case Western Reserve University researchers was recently published and chosen as an editor’s pick by the Journal of Applied Physics.

Published in June and titled “Ultrathin 2D-oxides: A perspective on fabrication, structure, defect, transport, electron, and phonon properties,” the paper focused on where the research is and the challenges remaining in the area of 2D oxide nanosheets. The focus is on the physics of these nanosheets as controlled by their multi-scale structure, including electronic- and ionic-structure and their processing.

The research team was composed of:

  • Santosh Kumar Radha (GRS ’20, physics), a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Physics;
  • Kyle Crowley (GRS ’20, physics), postdoctoral fellow at NASA Glenn Research Center;
  • Brian A. Holler, PhD candidate in the Department of Physics;
  • Xuan P. A. Gao, professor of physics;
  • Walter R. L. Lambrecht, professor of physics;
  • Halyna Volkova of MINES Paris, PSL University, Centre des Matériaux;
  • Marie-Hélène Berger of MINES Paris, PSL University, Centre des Matériaux;
  • Emily Pentzer, associate professor of materials science and engineering and chemistry at Texas A&M University;
  • Kevin G. Pachuta (GRS ’18, materials science and engineering; GRS ’21, materials science and engineering), a postdoctoral scholar in chemical engineering; and 
  • Alp Sehirlioglu, associate professor of materials science and engineering.
