Shen Research Group @ Cornell

Our research group investigates the emergent properties of quantum materials, with a particular focus on exotic superconductors, artificially engineered materials, and materials in the atomically thin limit. We employ a number of techniques, particularly materials synthesis via molecular beam epitaxy, angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, and various x-ray synchrotron-based spectroscopies. We also develop new instrumentation and techniques for synthesizing and investigating materials with atomic precision.
