We are a group of physicists and engineers that seek to explore the world of low-dimensional materials. Quantum phenomena dominate when materials are reduced to nano-scale dimensions and lead to diverse optical, electronic, and magnetic properties distinct from the bulk form. Using a range of optical and electronic experimental techniques, we study 2D materials (graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, etc.), 1D materials (carbon nanotubes, DNA photonic wires, nanowire memristors), and heterostructures formed by combining these materials.
Our proximity to nearby national labs and our close relationships with nearby universities allow the Lab to perform world-class studies of cutting edge materials. The results of our studies have impact in the fields of fundamental physics, materials science, nanoelectronics, biophysics, and quantum information.
