PhD ceremony Ms. N. Akhtar: Multifunctional organic-inorganic hybrid films deposited by the Langmuir-Blodgett technique

When:Fr 19-04-2013 at 16:15

PhD ceremony: Ms. N. Akhtar, 16.15 uur, Academiegebouw, Broerstraat 5, Groningen

Dissertation: Multifunctional organic-inorganic hybrid films deposited by the Langmuir-Blodgett technique

Promotor(s): prof. P. Rudolf

Faculty: Mathematics and Natural Sciences

The work presented in this thesis is an effort towards controlled engineering of multifunctional organic-inorganic hybrid materials with a precise control over the size and the growth directions. The experimental work undertaken focuses on molecule-based conductors, conducting magnets, and multiferroic organic-inorganic hybrid thin films fabricated by the Langmuir-Blodgett technique. The latter was chosen because it enables the stacking of different individual layers at ambient conditions and thereby the creation of well-ordered heterostructures on almost any kind of substrate with outstanding control. The produced films were characterized for what concerns their composition as well as their structural, electrical and magnetic properties.
