"Atom to Devices"

Our Research Strategically Focused on Three Main Research Themes:

Functional Materials


In the FMD Lab we engineer nanoscale functional materials (with at least one dimension below 100 nm) for use in energy-efficient electronic, and magnetic devices. We focus on manipulating metallic alloy and strongly correlated oxide materials, and their spin-ion-charge interactions at the nanoscale. The materials are prepared by various state-of-the-art deposition facilities such as DC/RF sputtering, Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD), and thermal evaporation. We also use different computational techniques such as Micromagnetic simulations, and Density functional theory (DFT) to design and understand materials systems.

Device Applications

At FMD Lab, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing socio-economic technological challenges. We focus on device (Emerging Devices for Neuromorphic computing, Caloric Refrigeration, Quantum Technologies, etc.) fabrication using the new materials systems we invent. These challenges are by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.


With this initiative, our goal is to develop a better place for mankind. We are committed to promote green technologies. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfil their potential. Learn more about our work by getting in touch with us.

Density-functional theory (DFT)

We use Density-functional theory (DFT) as a valuable tool to understand magneto-electric interaction at atomic level.

Micromagnetic simulations

We use micromagnetic simulations (e.g. OOMMF) as a valuable tool to increase our understanding of nanoscale magnetic systems, optimize magnetic nanostructures and guide our magnetic experiments through parameter spaces that would otherwise be difficult and expensive to navigate.

We also do DFT calculation in collaboration to understand magneto-electric interaction at atomic level.
