Our Focus

We are mainly concerned with quantum transport properties of low-dimensional electron systems, which are based on topological insulators, semiconductor heterostructures, magnetic semiconductors and semimetals, and hybrid structures comprising multiple types of materials. Currently our work is focused on the electron transport properties in which topology, magnetism, and electron-electron interactions often play essential roles. Most of our research requires a broad range of experimental techniques, including micro- and nano-fabrication, electron transport and spectroscopy at ultralow temperatures and in high magnetic fields, and in some cases, growth of low dimensional materials.
