Hello world!

The EQUAL lab is now open at Rice MSNE! I feel very proud to start my new career in a brilliant, friendly and productive...

Topological Dance of Atoms

For the first time, we have experimentally demonstrated that the vibration of atomic lattice may possess topological attributes. These chiral phonons are promising for...

Piezoelectricity in a single molecular layer

Piezoelectric materials, which convert energy between electricity and mechanical force, are the core of clocks, ultrasonics and microbalances. We have experimentally demonstrated that a...
