BETR Research Thrust: Embedded Memory


Sucheta Mondal is a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in UCB, currently working with the group of Prof. Jeffrey Bokor. She completed her Ph.D. in Condensed Matter Physics and Material Sciences from SNBNCBS, Kolkata (India) in 2019. Her doctoral research work was based on the study of ultrafast magnetization dynamics in magnetic thin films, heterostructure and nanostructures using optical pump-probe technique. At Berkeley, her research mainly focuses on ultrafast dynamics in advanced spintronic devices, focused on antiferromagnetic spintronics. Sucheta is trained in different micro-and nano fabrication techniques. Her research has been published in internationally acclaimed peer reviewed journals so far. She has leadership qualities, loves to participate in teamwork, and she is a passionate, self-motivated, and dedicated researcher who likes to continuously grow and to contribute towards development of magnetic memory and data storage technology in the future.


Antiferromagnetic system offers faster and energy efficient magnetic switching and is considered as a potential candidate for next generation magnetic data storage technology. Those are insensitive to external magnetic field and offer much higher packing density than ferromagnetic bits. Probing the ultrafast dynamics of antiferromagnets in picosecond timescale by means of electrical and optical techniques is the major goal of my current research. Optical switching of magnetic tunnel junction to store high speed data in future magnetic storage devices, is another field I am simultaneously working on.
