About FINO Lab

Welcome to the FINO Lab!

We are a group in the Department of Physics at Auburn University focused on the  research in designer complex oxide thin films, interfaces, multilayers and nanostructures. Our lab in Leach Science Center is home to a state-of-the-art hybrid oxide MBE system that is attached to an x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy system to grow and characterize oxide films. In addition to our capabilities at Auburn, we collaborate with scientists around the world for access to instrumentation such as electron microscopes and synchrotron x-ray characterization.

Prospective Students and Postdocs:

We do not currently have any openings for postdoctoral scholars. Prospective graduate students wishing to work in the group are encouraged to apply through the department’s admissions process. Current Auburn undergraduate students interested in working with the group should contact Dr. Comes using the information below.
