Welcome to Quantum Materials and Nanodevice Laboratory

We are a research group in the Physics and Astronomy Department at San Francisco State University. Our research focuses on the electronic, optical, and electro-optical properties of nanoscale devices made from two-dimensional systems and zero-dimensional systems. These devices are made from a recently discovered family of materials that are atoms thick. These materials include graphene, one atom thick carbon membrane, and transition metal dichalcogenides (MoS2, MoSe2, WS2, and WSe2). The zero-dimensional materials include quantum dots and different nano-particles.

We are equally interested in developing the applications of our devices ranging from efficient solar cells to biomedical applications.

We are currently looking for graduate and undergraduate students. Students from the engineering departments are also encouraged. We have several openings for motivated graduate and undergraduate students to work on electronic, optical, and electro-optical properties of low dimensional materials and different nanodevices. If interested, please stop by the office (TH317) or contact me via e-mail. Our lab is located in Thornton Hall (TH208).
