Superconductivity, Spintronics, Synthesis of quantum materials
New physics can emerge when different materials are brought together through precision synthesis. For example, in some oxide insulators, when one is grown on top the other, their interface can become metallic, hosting high mobility charge carriers, and even become superconducting at low temperatures. Investigation of these materials systems not only can shed light on the understanding of the underlying mechanism of many physical phenomena in condensed matter physics, but also bring about possible applications in quantum information science. We are interested in the synthesis of quantum materials with control in the atomic level using molecular beam epitaxy. We will investigate the structural, charge transport, spin transport, magnetic and optical properties of these synthesized materials. We will also fabricate devices to explore potential applications based on these materials using nanofabrication facilities.
