Welcome Dr. Ziliang Ye to SBQMI!
Ziliangs’ research focuses on probing & controlling emergent degrees of freedom in low-dimensional quantum materials and on atomically thin materials, such as transition metal dichalcogenide and graphene. Techniques include continuous & ultrafast optical spectroscopy, scanning nearfield optical microscopy, and nanofabrication of photonic devices to study fundamental science down to the atomic level.
Prior to joining the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UBC as an Assistant Professor and SBQMI as a Principal Investigator, he was a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Tony Heinz in Columbia and Stanford University after the PhD study with Prof. Xiang Zhang in UC Berkeley. He earned his B.S. in Physics at Fudan University, in Shanghai. Ziliang’s long-term interest in low-dimensional quantum materials, especially their optical properties, started from an internship in Prof. Xiaodong Cui’s group in HKU. Since then, he has published and refereed multiple papers in journals such as Nature, Science, Nature Physics, and PRL.
