Humboldt Research Fellowships for Sushmita Chandra, Xialong Feng and Ning Mao


April 02, 2024

Congratulations to Sushmita Chandra, Xialong Feng und Ning Mao, who have all been awarded Humboldt Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in the Topological Quantum Chemistry department!

During their fellowships the three researchers will be exploring  topological quantum materials.

In particular, Sushmita will fabricate nanodevices of few layers of MISFIT single crystals. Her goal is to study the coexistence of complementary physical phenomenon in these MISFIT superlattices which are of great importance for the construction of new quantum devices.

Ning Mao focuses on designing topological heterostructures to enhance thermoelectric performance via the Seebeck and Nernst effects. Additionally, he will explore novel phenomena in these heterostructures such as flat bands, interfacial superconductivity, the anomalous Hall effect, and synthetic gauge fields induced by strong interfacial coupling.

Xialong will work in the field of theoretical condensed matter physics, including the electronic, magnetic, and transport properties of novel quantum materials. His current research will focus on emergent kagome materials and layered transition metal dichalcogenides, particularly the mechanism of charge density waves, flat bands, and magnetism. The objective is to understand and predict novel physical properties through theoretical models and first-principles DFT calculations.” 

Congratulations, Sushmita, Xialong and Ning!
