Welcome to the MWM group led by Eugenio Zallo!

In the Zallo research subgroup at SNQS chair of WSI we focus on the growth of ultrapure van der Waals materials and explore their structure, symmetry and quantum opto-electronic properties. This broad class consist of layered combination of 2D materials and open up entirely new directions in materials and nano-science. In particular, our research aims at identifying routes to ultrapure growth and material assemblies that facilitate multifunctional design. Hereby, we combine van der Waals materials having dissimilar properties to build hybrid multi-component metamaterials with highly emergent functionalities.  To do this research we employ an ultrahigh-purity cluster consisting of a molecular beam epitaxy chamber for synthesis connected to an analytical chamber housing optical and electronic spectroscopy capabilities. More information about specific current research activities can be found here.
