We are interested in studying the growth of different 2D atomic-films (like graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, hexagonal boron nitride, etc.)
We believe that revealing the growth mechanism of such materials will enable the controlled growth of atomic films with the desired phase, number of layers, chemical composition (alloys and dopants) and thus, dictate the electrical, optical and chemical properties. Therefore, the group's research is dedicated to the rational growth of atomic-films and to explore the structure (phase, number of layers, chemical composition, stacking registry, etc.) – property (electrical, optical, etc.)
The 2D Materials Lab is equipped with state of the art chemical vapor deposition systems and characterization tools, such as Micro-Raman, electrical measurement systems, etc.
