To see a world in a grain of sand that we can grow 

Our research effort focuses on precise fabrication and spectroscopic characterization of low-dimensional quantum systems and novel topological/functional materials. We are interested in various physical properties of these systems including their growth mechanism, electronic and magnetic structure, surface and interfacial physics, and quantum size effects. Our primary techniques for investigating these systems are angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and molecular beam epitaxy (MBE).

We perform extensively theorectial modeling and first-principles calculations ourselves and in collaboration to gain comprehensive understanding of structural and electronic properties of quantum materials.

We invite you to visit our lab in the physics department, University of Missouri, and we seek collaborations in a quest for new physics in solid materials.
