Research Topic

The long-term vision is to develop super-functional 2-dimensional nanomaterials with enhanced physical/chemical & electrical/mechanical properties to overcome the current limits of materials in terms of mechanical strength/flexibility, chemical stability/reactivity, electronic/thermal conductivity, etc.

Research Area:
1. Nanomaterials Synthesis
- Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of CNTs and graphene.
- Large-area synthesis of 2D Nanomaterials.
- Self-assembled organic nanomaterials
- Nanowires & metal-organic core-shell nanostructures

2.Nanofabrication and characterization
- Electron-beam lithography techniques for molecular electronics
- Photolithography
- Low-temperature measurement of electron-transport properties
- Low-temperature measurement of magnetic properties

- High-Resolution Analytical Electron Microscopy
- Scanning Electron Microscopy
- Scanning Probe Microscopy (AFM, SKPM etc.).
