Research Interest


Our research interests focus on the rational design, atomically precise synthesis, and detailed investigation of the exotic physical phenomena emerging from topological carbon nanostructures. We pursue a highly integrated multidisciplinary research program including physical, chemistry and functional materials, founded on modular bottom-up organic synthesis of functional carbon nanostructures at atomic level, their controlled assembly behaviors, and the evaluation of inherent electronic, optical, and magnetic properties.
