The research of ExPlab is broadly classified into two groups- sample preparation from excitonic materials and their optical characterization. We have facilities to make monolayer and bi-layer heterostructure transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) using mechanical exfoliation of the bulk materials. We also transfer monolayer TMDs on patterned SiO2/Si substrates.
ExP lab has the following facilities:
- Exciton transport measurement
- Atomic force microscopy
- Photoluminescence spectrum analysis
- Probe station for electrical measurement
- Dip coater
We also have access to the Lurie Nanofabricaiton Facility at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
