Welcome to Nanostructured Materials Lab at Johns Hopkins University

Nanostructured Materials Lab (CLC Lab) is directed by Prof. Chia-Ling Chien of Department of Physics & Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University . It is also a member of Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at JHU.

Research in the CLC Lab focuses on nanostructures made from novel materials that exhibit enhanced magneto-electronic properties. These include:
  • Materials with high spin polarization, especially half-metallic ferromagnets.
  • Materials with long carrier mean free path and spin diffusion lengths.
  • Point contact spectroscopy
  • Heterogeneous layers that exhibit interfacial phenomena.
  • Multi-section quasi one-dimensional structures.
  • Lithographically patterned arrays of dots, antidots, and other structures.
  • The research effort encompasses synthesis and processing, characterization of nanostructures, measurements of properties, theoretical modeling, and prototype device fabrication and applications. These five tightly linked components form the research basis of this lab.
