The candidate will grow and characterize thin film heterostructures based on antiperovskite materials. The films will be grown by reactive co-deposition in a confocal sputtering chamber on various perovskite oxide substrates imposing various levels of epitaxial strain. The structural properties (lattice constants, octahedra tilt patterns) will be determined by X-ray diffraction. The composition will be checked by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Auger spectroscopy. The physical properties will be measured by SQUID magnetometry and magnetotransport in the 2-380 K temperature range, up to 9 T.
