Our faculty have diverse expertise in:

  • Synthesis of novel quantum and quantum-confined materials
  • Characterization of physical properties and discovery of new physical phenomena
  • Developing theoretical underpinnings of their physical properties and predicting new materials systems to guide experiments
  • Development of photonic devices for detecting chemical and biological processes.

Students working in this vibrant research gain expertise in synthesis of materials from the nanoscale to atomically thin films and bulk crystals, lithographic patterning of devices, modeling and prediction of structure and properties of novel materials, and developing new analytical instrumentation.
