techniques in our laboratory include high resolution X-ray diffraction, temperature
dependent photoluminescence spectroscopy, Hall effect measurement, modulated
electroreflectance spectrsocopy, Nomarski interference microscopy, Fourier
Transform Infrared spectroscopy, and Capacitance-Voltage (C-V) and
Current-Voltage (I-V) probes.
We have many
collaborators within CUNY and from other institutions in the US and abroad,
including Lia Krusin, Swapan Gayen, Daniel Akins, John Lombardi and Carlos
Meriles from The City College of New York, Igor Kuskovsky from Queens College
of CUNY, Claire Gmachl from Princeton University, Jennifer Hastie from
Strathclyde University in Glasgow, and Cevdet Noyan from Columbia University. Our funding comes primarily from the National
Science Foundation and from the Department of Energy. We are participants in
Princeton’s NSF ERC MIRTHE, City College’s NSF CREST CENSES and Columbia
University’s MIRT on Van der Waals materials.
