Ruomeng Huang

Research Staff

Dr Ruomeng Huang is a Research Fellow in the University of Southampton. His research focus is nanostructured chalcogenide materials and metal oxides, with a strong emphasis on the applications of novel non-volatile memory technologies (phase change memory and resistive switching memory) and thermoelectric (TE) generators. He has been working on the development of both electrodeposition and chemical vapour deposition techniques to achieve selective deposition of nanostructured chalcogenide materials. He is also interested in the metal oxides (e.g. ZnO, HfO2 and ZrO2) properties tuning and controlling to achieve improved device performance through reactive sputtering and atomic layer deposition.

Ruomeng studied Physics at East China Normal University, receiving a BSc in 2008 and a MEd in 2009. He came to Southampton in 2009 where he obtained a MSc in Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology in 2010 and a PhD investigating the confined nanoscale chalcogenide phase change material and memory in 2015. He was awarded an EPSRC Doctoral Prize in 2015 to continue his research in nanoscale chalcogenides. He is currently a Research Fellow in the Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology Group in the University of Southampton. He is the Research Co-Investigator in a STFC grant  for the development of thin film thermoelectric generators and a named researcher in an EPSRC program grant. Ruomeng has published over 20 journal papers (http://www.researcherid.com/rid/E-7316-2015) and delivered over 20 oral/poster presentations at national and international conferences. He is a reviewer of several journals including ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces and Journal of Materials Science.
