Research Areas

Our group works on experimental quantum materials physics. Our current research themes include but are not limited to 1)  Superconductivity including searching for new types of superconductors and study of unconventional superconductors; 2) Topologically ordered systems, especially quasi-1D materials with distinct topological phases and possible topological superconductivity; 3)  Crystal growth and phonon transport studies of thermal materials including ultrahigh and ultralow thermal conducting materials; 4) low dimensional vdW materials including transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), 2D magnets and their heterostructures; 5)  Structure-property relationships of complex strongly correlated electron systems and multi-interaction systems, especially materials with quantum collective phenomena such as spin/charge order, nematic order, frustrated magnets, and quantum criticality. We often design and discover new quantum materials along the process with unexpected physical phenomena and properties. We welcome highly motivated graduate and undergraduate students to join the wonderful research journey with us!

Heat-Conducting Crystals Could Help Computer Chips Keep Their Cool
Heat-Conducting Crystals Could Help Computer Chips Keep Their Cool If your laptop or cellphone starts to feel warm after playing hours of video games or running too many apps at one time, those devices are actually doing their job.

Whisking heat away from the circuitry in a computer’s innards to the outside environment is critical: Overheated computer chips can make programs run slower or freeze, shut the device down altogether or cause permanent damage.
Crystals Reveal New Physics of Topological Insulators
Crystals Reveal New Physics of Topological Insulators Combining exceptional crystal-growing skills with theoretical predictions, University of Texas at Dallas scientists and their collaborators have revealed new insights into materials called topological insulators.

Physicists found that crystals made from bismuth and iodine transition into a novel structure at room temperature that significantly alters the material’s electronic properties. 

Physicists’ 2D Crystals Show Promise for Advanced Electronics
Physicists’ 2D Crystals Show Promise for Advanced Electronics A team of researchers, led by University of Texas at Dallas scientists, has developed a new technique to grow exceptionally large, high-quality crystals that could help make advanced electronics, such as spintronic and magnetic optoelectronic devices, a reality.

Very thin layers — just one or two atoms thick — can be exfoliated easily from the bulk crystals. These two-dimensional layers exhibit surprising magnetic properties and are very stable in air at room temperature, making them of interest for use in devices that incorporate stacked layers of different materials.
Innovative Educators Earn President’s Teaching Excellence Awards
Innovative Educators Earn President’s Teaching Excellence Awards The University of Texas at Dallas recognized a group of faculty members for their outstanding achievements recently during the Center for Teaching and Learning’s sixth annual Celebration of Teaching Excellence.

Five educators received President’s Teaching Excellence Awards for their positive impact and innovative approaches in the classroom, while 21 others were honored for completing a national teaching course offered by the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE). Recent recipients of UTD’s mentoring awards and UT System honors were also among those recognized.
