Welcome to the Galis Research Lab

Quantum and materials sciences form the scientific foundation for perceiving and controlling properties of matter with the goal of developing new and superior technologies. The most urgent challenges involve developing approaches to foster advancement of novel materials and the ability to understand and control matter at the nanoscale. Approaching these challenges from the unique viewpoint of nanoscale science and engineering can open new pathways to fundamentally revolutionizing the current and potential future of quantum and materials sciences. To this end, our research group focuses on the fabrication and characterization of nanostructured and 2D materials and devices for quantum, optoelectronic and sensing applications.
