The overarching goal of our group is to develop scalable, industry-compatible approaches to engineer low-dimensional (2D, 1D, and 0D) materials, heterostructures, assemblies, and devices with atomic-scale precision. This atomic-scale precision promises unprecedented control over properties and designer electronic, photonic, and quantum devices with unparalleled performance and entirely new functionality. The nanoscale systems developed in our group are harnessed to develop next-generation technologies, including integrated circuits, photovoltaics, optoelectronics, flexible devices, and quantum computing, communication, and sensing. Our research also provides new opportunities to advance fundamental understanding of quantum phenomena, crystal growth, and semiconductor device physics.
If you are interested in joining our team, please contact Dr. Jacobberger. Current research thrusts include:
- Engineering 2D materials to enable electronic, photonic, and quantum devices that are atomically thin, highly tunable, and multifunctional.
- Creating atomically identical qubits and assembling qubits into arrays to realize scalable quantum technologies.
- Developing new material and device strategies to increase the efficiency of solar cells beyond conventional limits.
- Integrating 2D materials onto conventional bulk materials to enable hybrid semiconductor devices and new device concepts.
