Weida Wu (PI) , along with co-PI's Sean Oh, Peter Armitage [Johns-Hopkins], and Shengbai Zhang [RPI], have received a $2M NSF Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) Award entitled "2-DARE: Engineering novel topological interface states in 2D chalcogenide heterostructures." The team aims to engineer topological interface states residing at the boundary between a topological insulator and a conventional semiconductor. The research activities will address the challenges of materials synthesis, realization of optoelectronic and spintronic devices, and their characterizations.

Congratulations Weida and Sean.
