Research Overview:

We explore unknown scientific territories in thin film quantum materials using a state-of-the-art Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) technique in combination with various characterization probes. Our custom-designed MBE system has a number of unique capabilities that facilitate atomic-scale engineering of a variety of novel quantum material systems. Utilizing these unique capabilities, we are actively investigating various thin quantum materials including topological insulators, 2D materials, complex oxides and their heterostructures. Such quantum heterostructures could yield new physics and devices that are intriguing both intellectually and technologically.
