Dr Lynette Keeney awarded the RIA-Royal Society International Exchange Cost-Share Grant for 201908 August 2019
This programme covers research in the natural sciences, enabling high-impact collaborations between researchers based in Ireland and the UK over a two-year period.
The 2019 awardee is Dr Lynette Keeney from University College Cork who will collaborate with Dr Jonathan Alaria of the University of Liverpool on a project entitled “Linking the magneto-electric properties of novel multiferroic materials at the micro- and nano- scale for beyond CMOS data storage technology”.
Dr Lynette Keeney (Tyndall National Institute-UCC) is a Royal Society-Science Foundation Ireland University Research Fellow focussing on the synthesis and understandings of rare room temperature multiferroic thin films so that they can be optimised for future data storage technologies. Current work centres on exploring how sub-unit cell characteristics influence multiferroic behaviour and if these fascinating multiferroic properties can persist at very small (< 10nm) dimensions
Upon hearing the news Dr Keeney said
“I am delighted about the prospect of establishing a formal collaboration with the University of Liverpool. Dr. Alaria and I independently made breakthrough discoveries of rare room temperature multiferroic materials. Through this scheme, we now have the opportunity to work together and share our expertise for the advanced development of these intriguing materials for next-generation data storage technologies”.
