Lab Research

Our lab conducts highly interdisciplinary research at the forefront of materials science, condensed matter physics, and electrical engineering. The experimental work includes materials synthesis using solid-state growth techniques including molecular beam epitaxy and e-beam evaporation. We then characterize our materials using advanced techniques ranging from electron microscopy to X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Auger spectroscopy, and femtosecond Ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (fs-UPS). Our materials will be then integrated into solid-state devices such as Hall bars, Josephson junctions, Schottky diodes, etc. In order to probe the physics of the materials system under study we then cool down our devices in our dry refrigerators down to 1.5K and probe the properties under external magnetic/electric fields.
