Research group of Physics of low-dimensional electronic systems




We have currently been interested in the physics of two-dimensional (2D) materials and of van der Waals heterostructures made of 2D materials stacked together using the “lego” priciple. Particularly, we have been deploying:

  • Simulation of atomic structure and investigation of mechanical and thermal conduction properties of 2D materials
  • Calculation of the electronic structure of 2D materials and investigation of their optical and transport properties
  • Study of the interlayer interaction effect on electronic, optical and transport properties of van der Waals heterostructures
  • Propose and design appropriate devices based on particular properties of 2D materials and van der Waals heterostructures
  • Develop efficient calculation methods and computational techniques in order to calculate physics quantities characterising fundamental properties of 2D materials and van der Waals heterostructures, to model and simulate the operation of devices.


We are looking for good candidates for the position of researcher, postdoc, doctorate student and internship students to unveil the physics of 2D materials and vdW heterostructures; to combine and develop machine learning and artificial neural network techniques for the prediction of the metal, insulator and topological insulator phases.
