Novel quantum matter

We are working on creating and exploring novel quantum materials on the mesoscopic scale.  We search for emergent physical phenomena, such as superconductivity, magnetism, and quantum spin liquids in novel quantum structures created by various advanced material growth and manipulation.  Here, we combine low-temperature quantum transport measurements with advanced characterization techniques like transmission electron microscopy (TEM), optical spectroscopy to reveal these engineered quantum materials' fundamental properties. Several current research interests include (1) the intercalation of 2D materials heterostructure for novel superconductivity and magnetism; (2) advanced crystal growing techniques using the flux method and molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) for vdW layered quantum heterostructures; (3) in-situ TEM study of van dew Waals heterostructures, and (4) search for emergent phenomena in low dimensional organic/inorganic heterostructures.
