nano & quantum materials

We investigate nanoscale, low-dimensional, and/or quantum materials, e.g., graphene and other atomic layer materials, quantum wells, wires, and dots of various constructs, and (optically-detected) spin resonance systems. We study electron transport, spin dynamics, topological order, correlated electron behavior and collective excitations, optical properties, and electrochemistry in these materials, and pursue their applications in plasmonics, photonics, spintronics, nano-biotechnology, quantum information as well as (beyond-CMOS) electronics.
