Complex-oxide Acousto-Electronics

Scientific Background

I received my bachelor’s and master’s degree in Physics at Ege University, in Turkey with a strong motivation and background on solid-state physics and high-temperature superconductivity. Mainly, I focused on superconducting YBCO multilayer structures and device applications by using various thin film deposition, micro-lithography and cryogenic measurement facilities.

Current Research Topic

The main objective of my project is generation of ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) SAWs on complex-oxide multilayers, in particular on top of the SrTiO3/LaAlO3 conducting interface which shows electronic, orbital and structural degrees of freedom, leading to rich magnetic effects and superconductivity, which are not found in their semiconducting counterparts (e.g., like GaAs/AlGaAs).


My goal is to integrate the SAW technology with the oxide electronics and to demonstrate carrier and spin transport.
