Our main research interests are in condensed matter physics. We use quantum mechanics to communicate with atoms, thermodynamics to interpret their behavior, and Newtonian mechanics to anticipate their next moves. Our research objective in materials study is to investigate electronic and vibrational properties, structural stability, and phase transition of materials.

The current research focus areas are in development of materials for energy applications.
