Research question

 The discovery of novel materials has revolutionized our society and information technologies. However, traditional materials used so far are not sustainable, and devices have limited efficiency in meeting the future demands in computing performance and energy consumption. To address these challenges, we propose an approach that harnesses the potential of atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) quantum materials and heterostructures. Through precise engineering of fundamental interactions and leveraging topological quantum phenomena, our aim is to pioneer energy-efficient spintronic memory and logic technologies. The project’s objectives encompass the discovery of new 2D topological materials and 2D magnets, exploring their intricate interactions, and harnessing the quantum spin degree of freedom for sustainable and energy-efficient computing applications.
