Tailored quantum nanosystems: electronics – photophysics – interactions – collective behavior
We experimentally focus on exploration of the light matter interaction, charge of functional sites on the atomistic level and at interfacial processes as well as on emergent phenomena in novel two-dimensional quantum materials such as transition metal dichalcogenides, graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, 2D polar metals and their hetero- and hybrid structures. The aim is to gain a fundamental understanding of the physical properties of those systems, and to learn – in a next step – to control and tailor them on purpose with the vision to achieve novel functionalities and at the same time to look for potential applications in an interdisciplinary context. These low-dimensional systems are therefore integrated in nano- and microscale circuitries, as well as in proof-of-concept and prototypical devices to explore their potential for opto-/electronic applications and to serve as test-bed structures towards (topological) quantum technologies.
For all above research directions, we thank Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) for funding in several projects. In particular, we are grateful for the support of the excellence cluster Nanosystems Initiative Munich (NIM) and the excellence initiative e-conversion.
