Biography

Education  Ph.D., University of Maryland, College Park, 1996  Research Interests  Applications of combinatorial synthesis and characterization methodology to electronic, magnetic and smart materials; fabrication and characterization of novel multilayer thin-film devices; variable temperature scanning probe microscopes. Background  Download Professor Takeuchi's C.V. (PDF) Current Research Projects  Combinatorial Investigation of Functional Materials We have developed a comprehensive methodology for rapid mapping of previously unexplored compositional landscape in search of novel multifunctional materials. A variety of thin film deposition tools are implemented for synthesis of combinatorial thin film libraries and composition spreads of various designs. A suite of rapid characterization tools are utilized for quantitative mapping of relevant physical properties across combinatorial libraries. These include microwave microscopes, a scanning magneto-optical Kerr measurement setup and scanning x-ray diffractometers. Current topics of interest include magnetistrictive materials, multiferroic materials, and shape memory alloys. Our recent emphasis has also been on development of informatics techniques to effectively handle, visualize, and analyze the large amount of data which are generated from the combinatorial experiments. We have a network of international collaborators with whom a number of combinatorial experiments are carried out at any given time
