Research Projects

Dilute Magnetic Semiconductors

I am currently studying “dilute magnetic semiconductors”; semiconductors where transition metal impurities have been introduced in order to allow the control of spin properties within the materials. This is currently a field of interest as spin-manipulatable materials have the potential to lower energy usage within electronics, and open up new doors in computer processor technology. Using experimental techniques and multiplet theory, the goal is to understand how the dopants interact with the local crystal structure.
