Current Research

Our research group is interested in developing new quantum devices using recently discovered topological magnetic, superconducting, and 2D quantum materials. We are a new research group. The group is determined to uncover new quantum technologies by developing micro-and nanoscale quantum devices. Our group is in the process of developing state-of-the-art thin-film growth, nanofabrication, and low-temperature magnetotransport, and magneto-optical techniques. Presently, we are working on an emerging new research area called Weyltronics. Our present focus is to study topological Dirac and Weyl semimetal thin films and explore their exotic electrical, thermal, and optical properties under electric, magnetic, and strain fields.
