Photon-induced phenomena in molecules and other materials play a significant role in device applications as well as understanding their physical properties. However, using bulk systems has reached the limit in their functions, performance, and regarding application range.
Low-dimensional quantum systems have recently emerged as appealing resources for the next generation device applications based on their significantly improved functions and properties. Hence, understanding light-matter interactions at their natural length scale is of fundamental significance.
My research focuses on discovering and controlling a range of new functions and behaviors of low-dimensional quantum materials through the advanced tip-enhanced near-field spectroscopy and imaging techniques exceeding the current instrumental limits.
