Dr. Comes Wins Air Force Young Investigator Award

Dr. Comes’ proposal entitled Metastable Oxides for High-Mobility and Spin-Orbit 2D Electronics has been chosen as one of 40 projects to be funded through the 2020 Air Force Young Investigator Program! This grant for $450,000 will begin in 2020 and support the group’s research in the use of hybrid molecular beam epitaxy to stabilize oxides that act as strong donors across interfaces and exhibit high spin-orbit coupling. Graduate student Suresh Thapa has already been hard at work developing these capabilities and now the group will be able to dive into the project. To learn more about the project, take a look at the Auburn news release.
