Research Summary

We use optics to study spin-dependent electronic and magnetic phenomena in semiconductor materials, in hopes of discovering new mechanisms for future electronics and computations. Currently we focus on two material systems, organic-inorganic perovskite semiconductors with remarkable optoelectronic properties and mysteries related to the hybrid nature, and layered magnetic semiconductors as potential two-dimensional magnetic materials.
