2D Materials and Devices Group

Our research deals with fundamental aspects of two-dimensional materials synthesized by chemical exfoliation and chemical vapor deposition. We study: phase engineering of 2D materials; low resistance electrical contacts on 2D semiconductors for high performance electronics; metallic 2D materials for energy storage and electrocatalysis; interfaces between 3D complex oxides and 2D; and chemical functionalization of 2D materials.
