CFN Research Activities

We are focusing on the basic properties of 2D materials , such  as  graphene, BN , MoS2, SnS2 et al.  After CVD  growth  or exfoliation of  those  2D materials, we  transfer  them to  suitable substrates  and  make devices  to study their  electrical  and mechanical  properties . Besides, we are also  interested in  the  heterstructures  of  2D  materials,  such as  graphene-Boron Nitride.
