oxide membranes

Our research focuses on two-dimensional (2D) material systems with unusual electromagnetic properties, with an emphasis on:

- Design of low-dimensional materials

- Emergent electromagnetic phases from correlated electrons

- Energy-efficient applications based on artificially designed materials
