We are interested in exploring the emergent physical properties of novel nanostructured materials that arise from the fundamental symmetries, interactions and nano-scale confinement. Our research encompasses the nanomaterial synthesis, nano-device fabrication and nano-scale measurement. The nanostructures include 1-D nanowires, 2-D nanoplates, thin films, and their heterostructures and superlattices. We are particularly interested in their structural, electrical, magnetic and thermoelectric properties as well as the unique couplings of these properties at the nano-scale. The material systems that we are currently interested in include:

  • Correlated Metal Oxides with Strong Spin-orbit Coupling

  • Topological Crystalline Insulators

  • 2-D Ferromagnetic Semiconductors
