Leland Nordin is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Professor Kunal Mukherjee's group and a Fellow of the Geballe Lab for Advanced Materials. Prior to his Stanford appointment, Leland was a graduate student in Professor Dan Wasserman's group at The University of Texas at Austin. In Professor Wasserman's group Leland performed the design, growth, fabrication, and characterization of state-of-the-art III-V ultra-thin plasmonic infrared detectors and emitters. His current research involves investigating the potential for utilizing IV-VI alloys as plasmonic materials in the mid-infrared, and subsequently demonstrating plasmonic IV-VI optoelectronic structures and devices for high-performance light emission, detection, and modulation.
Aristide Gumyusenge received his Ph.D in Chemistry from Purdue University in 2019 after his research on polymer-based high temperature organic electronics in the research group of Prof. Jianguo Mei. He joined Stanford in January 2020 as the Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials (GLAM) Postdoctoral Research Fellow. His research focuses on organic-based artificial synapses for neuromorphic computing. Aristide likes to play (and watch) soccer and basketball.
Ting Cao’s research employs high-performance computing, advanced materials modelling techniques, and quantum physics to study topics in condensed matter physics and materials science, with special focus on the electronic structures of materials, excited-state phenomena, and light-matter interactions. Ting Cao’s current research interest lies in exploring the distinct physical properties of one- and two-dimensional material systems potentially useful for future applications.
Siying Peng's interests include mid-infrared nanophotonics, topological photonics and 3D photonic materials. Her research at Stanford focuses on mid-infrared light emission and absorption of GeSn nanowires. She also explores unique plasmonic and phononic properties of gold nanoparticles with hcp crystal lattices.
Matthew Gebbie’s research focuses on developing techniques and materials to understand and engineer the molecular properties of electrochemical and biological interfaces. As a GLAM Fellow, his projects center on tackling fundamental questions surrounding the synthesis of diamond nanomaterials and designing new approaches for creating crystallographic color center defects in diamond lattices for fluorescent bio-imaging and electric field sensing.
Yang Liu's research focuses on the atomic manipulation using scanning tunneling microscopy technique. We reveal a gentle charge fluctuation on Cu surface using a scanning quantum cantilever formed by mounting one CO molecule on the STM tip. In the strained artificial graphene, I demonstrate that the magnetic flux quanta enclosed by the Landau level wavefunctions persists remains constant even when the length-scale of the magnetic confinement is comparable to the lattice constant.
