Welcome to our group. Our research concerns the study and control of the electronic states in functional materials. We employ both experimental and theoretical methods to investigate problems such as unconventional superconductivity, electronic heterogeneity, electron-density variation across interfaces in atomically precise hetero-structures, new collective behavior in the vicinity of quantum phase transitions and electron motion through materials at their quantum limits. Experimental techniques developed in-house for our research include miniature magnetometers, scanning probes, thermal and electrical measurement apparatuses to the milli-Kelvin regime and high fields.
