Weiting worked in National Chiao Tung University University before he came to Shih's Lab. He is interested in spin/valley dynamics and magneto-optical properties of two-dimensional layered materials, symmetry-dependent electronic and optical properties of van der Waals heterostructures. He is not working at Time-Resolved Kerr Rotation Microscopy and Kerr Rotation Spectroscopy in the lab
Chunyuan got his PhD degree in National Tsing Hua University on 2015. He worked on Sorting and Routing Valley Excitons in a Monolayer MoS2 with a Metasurface and Giant Colloidal Silver Crystals for Low-Loss Linear and Nonlinear Plasmonics at that time. Now he is working on van der Waals monolayer or heterostructures, Plasmonic and metasurface structures in UT
Madisen got her Bachelor's degree from Lewis & Clark College. After joining Shih's lab, she works on structural and electronic properties of two dimensional semiconductors and insulators. Also, she is interested in electronic properties of two dimensional vertical heterostructures. She is now in charge of STM and MBE growth of Metallic, Insulator, and Semiconductor Thin Films.
Woojoo got his B.S at Chung-Ang University and Master's degree in Seoul National Univeristy. He is interested in light driven non-equilibrium dynamics, topological phase materials and 2 dimensional materials. He is now in charge of Angle-resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy and the MBE growth of Thin Films.
Mengke got her Bachelor's degree at Zhejiang University. She is interested in structural and electronic properties of low dimensional superconductors. She is using STM and MBE to grow and investigate Van der Waals material heterostructures and topoligical materials (including topological superconductors and insulators).
Hyunsue got her Bachelor's degree at University of Wisconsin Madison. And she is now pursuing a PhD degree in UT. Her interests are topological insulators, TMD heterostructures and Angle Resolved Photoemission Experiment.
Lisa has a B.S. in Physics from Texas State University. She is currently a 1st year PhD track graduate student at UT austin. She is currently interested in learning scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) to study 2D materials. She has a dog and a cat. For fun she likes to go camping and play billiards pool.
Yanxing graduated from University of Sicience and Technology Beijing with a B.Sc and joined Shih's group in 2020. He is interested in Van Der Waals heterostructures, time resolved laser spectroscopy and topological materials.
Graduate Student at Prof. Lai's group
Jia got his B.Sc degree from Peking University. He is a student in Prof. Lai's group. Now he is also learning some UHV MBE and STM techniques at Shih's Lab.
