Topological states in 2D materials (Topo2D)

Contacts: Rebeca RIBEIRO-PALAU

Our lab focuses on the investigation of the fundamental properties of topological states of matter obtained in two-dimensional materials, either as an intrinsic propertie or drive by an external field. We combine innovative sample fabrication techniques with low temperatures electronic transport measurements to understand the physical origin and how to control topological phases. Our research is mainly divided in two areas: 


Quantum Hall effect in graphene
