    1. Graphene, 2D Materials: 2D materials (graphene, hBN, and others) and their heterostructures have emerged as exciting systems for investigation of novel physical properties and applications in ultrathin electronics. Our focus lies on the hunt for next-generation 2D materials beyond graphene.

    2. Electron Microscopy: Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) allows us to investigate various material properties at atomic resolution. Especially, the developments of various in situ & ex situ measurement systems now can be used to image atomic and nano-scale behaviors of materials under various environments including electric fields, mechanical stimulus, and liquid-phase.

    3. Nanoelectromechanical Systems (NEMS): Nanoelectromechanical systems utilize the mechanical degree of freedom of nanodevices to investigate mechanical properties of nanomaterials, quantum mechanical behaviors as well as to explore its applications for sensors with ultra-high sensitivity.
