Academic Achievements

Probing the electronic and optical properties of novel 2D materials and van der Waals heterojunctions by various optical spectroscopy, such as Fourier Transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), photoluminescence spectroscopy (PL) and ultrafast spectroscopy, and exploring their potential applications in photonics and optoelectronics. My current research focuses on infrared study of few-layer black phosphorus. I have published several papers in Nature Communications, Science Advances and Nano Letters as first author in the past few years.
