Two-Dimensional Quantum Materials

Two-dimensional (2D) Van der Waals quantum materials and heterostructures have opened unprecedented opportunities to explore new physics and device concepts. Using the theoretical modeling based on density functional theory (DFT), we explore fascinating properties emerging in 2D quantum materials, such as ferroelectricity, quantum anomalous Hall effect, charge density wave, and superconductivity, and design the promising devices for nanoscale electronics.  


Research highlights:

  1. Tunneling valley Hall effect
  2. 2D Antiferroelectric tunnel junction
  3. A native ferroelectric semimetal
  4. Spintronic properties controlled by 2D ferroelectricity
  5. Charge density wave and superconductivity
