Fernando Gallego joined the group as a post-doc in April 2020. He is currently finishing his PhD at Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM-CSIC) (Spain) on interfacial properties tunability in complex-oxide devices. In a first part of his PhD, he fabricated multiferroic tunnel junctions to induce an interfacial superconducting state in a non-superconducting Lanthanum Strontium cuprate. The second part was the study of the Metal-to-Insulator transition in a Strontium Iridate controlled by the application of an electric field.
He graduated in Physics and specialized in nanomaterials science from Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain) and his final project was titled “Tunnel Junctions based on Correlated Oxides”. Now he is starting his Postdoc in Spin-to-charge conversion devices, aiming for transistors with higher processing speed and non-volatility.
