Nanodynamics

Junior Research Group of Dr. Svetoslav Stankov

 

Nanodynamics is a Helmholtz-University Young Investigators Group with a subject “Interplay between structure and lattice dynamics of epitaxial rare earth nanostructures”. The group is established jointly by the Institute for Synchrotron Radiation (Campus Nord) and by the Laboratory for Applications of Synchrotron Radiation (Campus Süd) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

Our efforts are focused on growth and systematic investigation of the influence of structure, size, strain, and shape on the lattice dynamics, thermodynamic, and elastic properties of epitaxial rare earth based nanostructures.
This research is motivated by the observed significant modification of the lattice dynamics of the nanoscale materials in comparison to the bulk counterparts. It is expected that the thermal lattice excitations (phonons) will play an important role for the performance, lifetime, and thermodynamic stability of the near-future nanodevices. Therefore, for nanotechnological applications it is mandatory to get fundamental and comprehensive understanding of the lattice dynamics in order to better control and even tailor thermal and elastic properties at the nanoscale.
Nanostructures based on the rare earth elements play an important role in various fields such as micro and nano electronics, catalysis, and magnetism. Particularly important are the thin rare earth oxide films selected to replace SiO2 in the CMOS technology due to their high dielectric constants (high-k materials). This allows one to push the sizes of the devices to ever smaller dimensions.

In our research we combine state of the art surface science techniques with in-situ synchrotron radiation scattering and spectroscopic methods at large scale facilities such as ANKA (Karlsruhe), ESRF (Grenoble), and PETRA III (Hamburg).
