a unique research group in the heart of Europe

We work with atomically flat surfaces and interfaces

2D material-metal interfaces

Strong interaction between MoS2 and Au generates strain and charge transfer and is key to contact engineering in optoelectronic devices.

Electrolyte gating of 2D materials

Electrostatic gating of semiconductors by ionic electrolytes induces record charge carrier densities and allows for observation of exotic phenomena.

Spectroelectrochemistry of graphene

In-situ Raman spectroscopy and electrochemistry of graphene reveals links between its electronic band structure and chemical reactivity.

Layered material photodetectors

Topological insulators, such as Bi2SeTe2, exhibit self-biased photodetecting behavior useful for low-power and remote-sensing operations.
