We are an experimental condensed matter physics research group. We use and develop advanced optical spectroscopies to investigate ultrafast phenomena and optical properties in novel materials. Experimental tools include pump-probe spectroscopy, transient grating spectroscopy, spin noise spectroscopy, photoluminescence, second-harmonic generation, etc. Current fields of research include atomically-thin transition metal dichalcogenides and other low-dimensional nanostructures.

News: The Yang group has moved to Tsinghua University. We have openings for graduate students and postdocs. Please contact Prof. Yang: luyi-yang@mail.tsinghua.edu.cn.
