Feng Luo obtained his BSc (1999) supervised by Prof. Zhongfan Liu, and then joined Prof. Chunhua Yan’s research group and got his PhD in Materials Chemistry at the College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineer- ing, Peking University in 2004. Then he worked as a postdoc in the Max-Planck-Institute for Microstructure Physics (Germany) and in the Laboratory for Micro- and Nanotechnology from the Paul Scherrer Institut (Switzerland) until Oct. 2009. From 11/2009-11/2010, he was appointed as a principal investigator in the College of Engineering at Peking University. Since 12/2010 he works at IMDEA-Nanoscience (Madrid) as junior group leader of Multi-Functional Devices by Interface Control and Nanoengineering and hold Ramón y Cajal grant since 2014. From 2014 he was promoted to Senior Researcher.
The group has varied interests in the nanofabrication and 2D devices. In particular we are active in:
- Nanomagnetism and spintronics:
- Low dimensional magnetic nanocrystalline materials and bit patterned magnetic recording media for ultra-high density magnetic recording.
- Correlation between the microstructure and magnetic properties in hard magnetic thin film materials for magnetic head.
- Magnetostric / ferroelectric ultra-thin film composites and devices (magnetic sensor an energyhar- vester and so on).
- Synchrotron based x-ray magnetic imaging and magnetization reversal.
- Magneto-plasmonic effect of Au/Co/Au nanoring based structures by Hole mask colloidal lithography and e-beam lithography.
- Micro and nano-fabrication technology:
- Methodology of semiconductor micro and nanofabrication for graphene devices.
- Electron beam, laser, ultra violet and nanoimprint lithographys for device fabrication.
- Graphene or other 2D materials based devices combined with magnetic metals.
