Abstract
We aim to undertake a Phase I study of multiferroic heterostructure thin film composite materials (CoFeB / PMN-PT) and their applications in high frequency (>10GHz) microwave passive circuit building blocks. In this Phase I investigation, Aneeve Nanotechnologies together with Prof Charles Ahn (Yale University) and Dr. Pedram Khalili (UCLA) will develop multiferroic heterostructure systems to demonstrate magneto-electrically tunable RF isolators. The project will consist of material sputter deposition (CoFeB/PMN-PT), material characterization (MOKE, SQUID, SEM, AFM), device design / fabrication (metallization, etching) and device RF testing (GHz range). Within Phase 1 we envisage to fabricate 2 batches of 20 devices focusing on key figures of merit.
