Lynette Keeney

Biography

Dr. Lynette Keeney received a B.Sc. in chemistry in 2001 from National University of Ireland (NUI), Galway and a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry in 2004 also from NUI, Galway where she won five University awards for her undergraduate and postgraduate studies. Before joining Tyndall-UCC in 2008, she worked as a Research Scientist in Charles River Laboratories, Pre-clinical Services, Montreal Inc. in method development and validation of analytical research studies. Dr. Keeney has a strong background in the synthesis of complicated metal oxide thin film systems by chemical solution deposition and chemical vapour deposition methods and characterization of these systems for potential memory storage applications. Her research interests are the investigation of ferroelectric, ferromagnetic and multiferroic materials and was one of the Irish representatives for the COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) Action MP0904 (Single and multiphase ferroics and multiferroics with restricted geometries (SIMUFER)) and is a member of the International Advisory Board of ECAPD (European Conference on Applications of Polar Dielectrics).  Dr. Keeney is a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry (MRSC). In 2015, Dr. Keeney was awarded a prestigious Royal Society/Science Foundation Ireland University Research Fellowship for her research project: 'Memories are made of this: Multiferroics Research for Future Generation Memories'. Dr. Keeney received the UCC Early Stage Researcher of the Year Award for 2015.

Research Interests

My field of specialisation is in materials science, particularly in the synthesis, understandings and optimisation of room temperature ferroelectric and multiferroic thin films for beyond CMOS data storage applications.
Our digital universe is doubling in size every two years. The International Data Corporation predicts that by 2020 it will contain nearly as many digital bits as there are stars in the observable universe! Multiferroic materials, possessing simultaneous electric and magnetic memory states, have been road-mapped as promising multi-state architectures for memory scaling beyond current technologies. No such devices currently exist however, as multiferroic materials with room temperature properties are extremely rare.
Based on my understandings of dielectric and magnetic materials and on my expertise in the synthesis of complex and advanced materials, I designed a material system (Aurivillius phase, Bi6TixFeyMnzO18) that exhibits multiferroic (ferroelectric and ferromagnetic) properties in a single homogeneous phase at ambient temperatures. Direct evidence for magnetic-field-induced ferroelectric domain switching at the nanoscale was demonstrated by using piezoresponse microscopy (PFM) under a variable magnetic field. Given that room temperature multiferroics are extremely scarce, development of this material has made noteworthy advances to the multiferroics field, resulting in Nature group publications (M. Schmidt, et al., Sci. Rep., 4, 5712 (2014); L. Keeney, et al., Sci. Rep., 7, 1737 (2017)) and a publication (L. Keeney, et al., J. of the Am. Ceram. Soc., 96 [8], 2339-2357 (2013)) which has been cited 114 times. My latest work demonstrates that the magnetic ions tend to congregate to the centre of the Aurivillius phase structure, aligning close to each other which would permit them to interact and create pathways for long-range magnetic order. Interestingly, the presence of sub-unit cell defects (stacking faults, out-of-phase boundaries) appears to further drive magnetic ions to the central layers. I am therefore eager to exploit this material and to address the intriguing research questions that this tantalising material opens up.

Outreach Activities

 Description

Host CEIA Transition Years in a 'hands on' materials science laboratory experiment.

Teen-Turn Mentor 2018

I have been active in various outreach activities including: volunteer helper during Discovery Exhibition, Science Week Ireland (2008-2012) activities and the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition (2011-2012). Participated in outreach activities including school workshops (2009-2012) and during Nano Week (2009). Gave a public talk on my research in the Blackrock Castle Observatory Science Café (2011). Gave an interview for ‘Science Spin’ magazine (2012). In November 2015, I spoke at Tyndall-UCC's Careers in Chemistry event, which was sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The purpose of this careers session was to enthuse and inform students about the various career options available from studying chemistry and other sciences.
