Surface Physics, Nano Science, Spin Science, Dirac Electrons, Superconductivity
We study the exotic macroscopic quantum phenomena at the surface that occur due to the quantum and relativistic effects
The three main ingredients of our research are:
(i) fabrication of novel materials
(ii) developing new experimental methods
(iii) exploring new physics
Other than the experiments we do at our lab., we go to synchrotron facilities or other user facilities to do state-of-art measurements.
We also have a lot of collaboration with theorists to explore novel quantum phenomena.
