Prof. Sehirlioglu received the NSF Early Career Development Award

Prof. Sehirlioglu received the NSF Early Carrer Development Award for his proposal on "Controlled processing of self-assembly in single crystal oxide films,". The five year project will focus on creation of super-structured oxide ceramics by designing interfacial materials physics. The objective of this project is to verify the hypothesis that self-assembly of octahedral building blocks of perovskites can be controlled by hetero-epitaxy leading to structures not available in bulk that can enable new functions, as local distortions lead to two-dimensional behavior - electrical, magnetic, thermal or ionic in nature - near the interface. The project is highlighted at Case Daily "Big investment on the smallest matters".
