Portrait of Jun Zhu

Jun Zhu

I am an experimentalist studying the electronic properties of low dimensional materials and nanostructures. My projects currently focus on layered materials such as graphene, MoS2 and WSe2. These atomically thin materials possess unique electronic structures that lead to novel collective phenomena in two dimensions and create opportunities for new device concepts that are based on bottom-up, layer-by-layer assembly. We seek to understand the properties of pristine materials and exploit the role of substrate, defect, interface, stacking and heterojunctions to create new physics and functionalities, combining synthesis, nanofabrication, low-temperature transport and a suite of powerful characterization techniques.
