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, Mohammad Sohel at Hostos Community College of CUNY, Claire Gmachl from Princeton University, Anthony Johnson at UMBC, Jennifer Hastie from
Strathclyde University in Glasgow, Cevdet Noyan and James Hone from Columbia University, and Shapong Wang at Fairfield Crystals, Inc.
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.
