    Abstract: Developments in synthesis and characterizing artificially structured materials have greatly advanced the possibility to explore new quantum states of matter at heterointerfaces. Atomically resolved electron microscopy and spectroscopy has been shown to hold the key to identify the structural, compositional and electronic behavior across the interfaces with atomic precision. This is especially crucial for complex oxides system since subtle variation in order parameters will give rise to totally unexpected phenomena.

    Abstract: Two-dimensional materials and crystals have recently emerged as a revolutionary new potential materials platform for a variety of DOE technologies including energy generation and storage. These materials also offer new possibilities for fundamental research and insight into low dimensional physics and chemistry. In this talk I will discuss our program to understand the electronic structure of these materials and show how this structure varies with film atomic layer thickness and parameters such as twist, composition, and substrate crystal.

    Abstract: Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) have attracted much interest for their potential applications in opto-electronic, spintronics and valleytronics devices. Direct determination of the electronic- and surface structure of TMDCs is crucial to the full understanding of their distinctive properties. In particular, like other atomically thin materials, the interactions with substrate impact the surface structure and morphology of TMDCs, and as a result, their structural and physical properties can be affected.

    Abstract: In strongly correlated electron materials (CEMs), the delicate interplay between spin, charge, and lattice degrees of freedom often leads to extremely rich phase diagrams exhibiting intrinsic phase inhomogeneities. The key to understand such complexities usually lies in the characterization and control of these materials at fundamental energy, time and length scales.
