Motivated by potential of graphene, other two-dimensional (2D) materials have also become the centre of current focus in nanoscience and nanotechnology. In this project we investigate different 2D materials for nanoelectronic and spintronic applications. Particularly, our focus is on MoS2 as a semiconductor, hexagonal-boron nitride as an insulator, Bi2Se3 as a topological insulator, and heterostructures of these materials along with graphene. In addition to the promising individual properties, combination of these 2D materials will enable us to make multi-functional, flexible, and transparent nano-devices. We develop novel approaches for fabrication of nano-devices and design new measurement techniques that lead to these fundamental physics experiments, and possible new applications.
