Exploration of Quantum Materials


We are exploring molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) growth of quantum materials (e.g., graphene, topological insulators, and Weyl semimetals), Fe-based superconductors, and 2D transition metal dichalcogenides, and the application of in situ low temperature and high magnetic field scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy (STM/S) and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) to gain new insights into these quantum phases of matter from the interplay of strain, proximity, correlations, and spin-orbit interactions.

The research is currently supported by grants from NSF and DOE.
