We will also aim to effectively control the novel quantum phenomena revealed in these materials by optical, electrical, or magnetic means. The materials we have studied so far include: three-dimensional topological insulators, Iron chalcogenide, diluted magnetic semiconductors, graphene, and MoS2.

Experimentally, atomic-scale precision equipment such as scanning tunneling microscopy and atomic force microscopy, are used to study the properties of surfaces including their topography, electronics and mechanics aspects etc. Theoretically mainly use computer simulations based on density functional theory to gain insights to experimental results, as well as make predictions. Surface physics research could expand our awareness of the basic natural sciences, and push forward the design and fabrication of novel low-dimensional functional materials and devices. Surface physics studies has been closely integrated with other researches fields, such as materials science, semiconductor physics, surface chemistry, vacuum physics, organic electronics etc., and hence received widespread attention.
