Associate Professor, School of Physics

Zhigang Jiang

Zhigang Jiang received his B.S. in Physics in 1999 from Beijing University and his Ph.D. in 2005 from Northwestern University. He was also a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Columbia University jointly with Princeton University and NHMFL from 2005 till 2008. Professor Jiang is interested in the quantum transport and infrared optical properties of low dimensional condensed matter systems. The current ongoing projects include: (1) infrared spectroscopy study of graphene and topological insulators, (2) spin transport in graphene devices, and (3) Andreev reflection spectroscopy of candidate topological superconductors.

Research Areas of Interest:

  • Infrared magneto-spectroscopy of correlated materials (graphene and topological insulators)
  • Spin transport in side-wall epitaxial graphene nanoribbons
  • Point-contact Andreev reflection spectroscopy of topological materials
