Welcome to the Electron Devices Society
We are very pleased to invite Professor John Heron to give an EDS talk! His talk is entitled "Electric field control of magnetism for energy efficient memory and logic devices". Prof. John Heron was awarded B.S. from UC Santa Barbara in 2007 where he studied magnetic semiconductors in the lab of Prof. David Awschalom. For masters and Ph.D. degrees (awarded in 2011 and 2013), he investigated magnetoelectric switching of thin film BiFeO3 under the mentorship of Prof. Ramamoorthy Ramesh at UC Berkeley. Heron received the Ross N. Tucker award for superior work and scholarship in the characterization, development and/or use of semiconductor, magnetic, optical or electronic materials by a graduate student or students pursuing such areas of inquiry at the University of California, Berkeley in 2013. As a postdoc in the lab of Prof. Schlom, Heron investigated magnetoelectric switching in novel composite multiferroic heterostructures. Since Jan. 2016, John Heron is now Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan. The Heron group focuses on investigating functional properties of ferroic material for energy efficient devices. He is best known for his work on the pulsed laser deposition thin film ferroic and multiferroic oxides and the characterization of magnetoelectric and multiferroic materials. Interest resides in interface, spin, structure, and charge effects that occur in layered structures with ferroic materials, such as (anti)ferromagnets, (anti)ferroelectrics, and multiferroics.
