Physical properties of low dimensional condensed matter systems using advanced nanofabrication techniques and lowtemperature transport measurements
Our experimental research group studies physical properties of low dimensional condensed matter systems. We use advanced nanofabrication techniques combined with controlled sample growth to design and develop sub-micron devices. These devices will be used to explore microscopic mechanisms that influence and/or dictate the fundamental physical properties at the nanometer scale level.
We explore electron transport in oxide nanowire FETs, nanotubes, 2D semiconductors, and other atomic layers under extreme physical conditions: ultra low temperatures (10 mK), high magnetic fields (16 T) and a.c. electric fields (~GHz). Some of our physics interests include metal-insulator transitions, noise spectroscopy near phase transitions, superconductor-insulator transition, microwave spectroscopy to study collective phases in 2D materials etc.
