Hong studies artificially designed materials in two-dimension (2D), including van der Waals materials, complex oxide, and their heterostructures. The research effort integrates atomic-scale synthesis, nanoscale manipulation and materials characterization to understand and harness new properties emerging at the nanoscale. The research group also explores novel applications based on exotic 2D quantum materials, from smart electronics to renewable energy devices.
