Irvine Quantum Materials Center

The QMDL is an interdisciplinary laboratory, focused on the quantum transport and optoelectronic properties of emergent quantum materials.

We grow high-quality bulk crystals of quantum materials, we exfoliate the crystals to obtain one or a few layers of atomically thin materials. Then, we assemble new materials by stacking together two or more different quantum materials. The newly formed material has very different properties than the constituent materials. This process is like building novel materials on-demand using Lego blocks. We fabricate two types of devices with these quantum materials:

  1. Light-matter interaction in Quantum optoelectronic devices
  2. Quantum transport of modular nano-devices
