2D semiconductors

2D semiconductors

Our expertise is in the synthesis of 2D nanosheet materials through liquid exfoliation and chemical exfoliation, and their chemical functionalization. We focus on the chemistries of phosphorene, arsenene, and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) and are interested in their optical and electronic properties.
