Welcome to Group SF01

Low-dimensional structures (as well as surface and interface) have novel physical properties and intrinsic quantum behaviors. The emergent phenomena of lowdimensional structures are attracting more and more interests in both fundamental research and device applications. The atomic-level growth and structure-property characterization is still a challenge, so far. Research on the correlation between properties and atomic/electronic structures is one of the basic tasks in condensed matter physics research.In-situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) method is powerful in a way that it can directly correlate the atomic-scale structures with physical properties. In this group, based on our before works on the synthesis and property of low-dimensional nanostructures and their in-situ we will continue to develop the new in-situ TEM technique to probe the emergent phenomena in low-dimensional structures.

The research content includes two main parts: one is controllable growth and physical properties of low-dimensional structures; another is quantum transport and novel emergent phenomena via developing in-situ TEM physical manipulation and measurement instrument.
