Kong Lab

Our research focuses on the design, synthesis and characterization of materials with novel magnetic and electronic properties, for the purposes of bettering our understanding and control of emergent electronic behavior in quantum materials. Our lab has a strong emphasis on discovering new material as well as single crystal growth. We use detailed structural, thermodynamic and transport measurements to study the physical properties of these new materials. Current fields of interest include low-dimensional magnetism, topological materials, strongly correlated phenomena and superconductivity.
