I am interested in two areas of research, i.e., 1) the physics and applications of magnetic semiconductors, ferromagnetic/ semiconductor hybrid materials and nano structures applied in the areas of electronics and photonics, and 2) fabrication and studies of electronic states in 2D materials, such as graphene and semiconductor transition metal dichalcogenides. Bulk semiconductors have been studied and used extensively, most of the new properties and applications come from low-dimensional structures, i.e., super lattices, quantum wells (2-dimensional), quantum wires (1-dimensional) and quantum dots (0-dimensional). Fabrication using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), physics and device studies of such structures are the focus. For 2D materials, scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy are used to understand the electronic structures under various perturbations.
