Our research group combines innovative materials growth, interface and chemical bonding analysis, and state-of-the-art devices to significantly enhance the knowledge and performance capabilities of nanoelectronic, optoelectronic, and energy storage applications.  Our approach utilizes advanced molecular beam epitaxy techniques and highly developed materials characterization to fundamentally understand the growth process, material nanostructure, chemical bonding, and experimentally determined band structure.  We then correlate those findings with advanced electrical transport measurements with devices that we fabricate to take full advantage of the novel properties of the materials and heterostructures that we create.
