Research Interests

Our research focuses on investigating novel phenomena in atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals crystals and their heterostructures. Using the state-of-the-art semiconductor nanofabrication and optical measurement techniques, we explore quantum mechanical properties of 2D materials and their possible applications. Current interests include spin and valley dependent quantum phenomena, layered magnetism, quantum information science, etc.
