Supriyo Bandyopadhyay Ph.D.
Dr. Bandyopadhyay's research focuses on electronic, spintronic, and optical device applications of nanostructures. Recently, a team of researchers from Bandyopadhyay’s group collaborated with a team from University of Cincinnati, lead by Marc Cahay, to achieve extremely long spin relaxation times. They fabricated an organic spin valve device consisting of an organic material sandwiched between two ferromagnets, which are magnetic materials, such as cobalt and nickel. The device had a diameter of 50 nanometers, which is 1/2000th times the width of human hair.
