Since phonons are the main heat carrier in carbon nanomaterials, we have been investigating the change in heat transport in the materials by modifying their structures such as isotopic heterostructures [1,2].

We conduct theoretical research based on quantum transport device simulation. Collaborating with Professors Amalia Patané and Laurence Eaves at the University of Nottingham, we have recently demonstrated a new type of Zener tunnelling that involves the resonant transmission of electrons through zero-dimensional (0D) states in a semiconductor resonant-tunnelling diode (RTD) .

In this project, we aim to develop a novel quantum electronics based on the coupling between spin and orbital motion of electrons in solids. We choose three-dimensional (3D) topological insulators, which have attracted great interests of contemporary materials science, as an ideal laboratory to study the spin-orbit coupling. A 3D topological insulator consists of a bulk insulating state and a conducting surface states which has a linear dispersion relation similar to graphene. Therefore exotic electro-magnetic responses are anticipated due to the relativistic

In the phonon group, we aim to develop technology which controls the vibrations of the crystal lattice and mechanical structures.
