Eric previously worked on examining ferromagnetic exchange coupling in Co40Pt60 alloys with a unique “nanochessboard” microstructure. His primary interest is in magnetic materials. Since joining the Schwartz group in 2016 as a PhD student in Materials Science and Engineering, he has focused on tape casting hexaferrite thick films for use in microwave frequency devices. His main goal is to create cost-efficient and scalable magnetic thick films to be used in a variety of applications such as antenna substrates, circulators, conformal magnetic-circuit antenna, etc.
