The Wang Lab at Duke University is committed to advancing engineering strategies for atomic layers, integral to futuristic computing paradigms.

Modern computing systems heavily utilize atomic layers to minimize their physical dimensions while amplifying their functional capabilities. This trend not only encourages the application of traditional transistor-based architectures but also perpetually evolves towards embracing futuristic computational concepts, such as quantum computing. Achieving Angstrom-level precision in the fabrication of atomic layers can significantly impact the macroscopic performance of devices embedded in these systems. However, the existing suite of scalable engineering tools more frequently generates sub-nanometer defects than it rectifies. As a result, the fascinating properties observed in atomic layers have yet transitioned into industrial applications due to the inherent difficulties associated with scalable manufacturing. The Wang Lab is concentrated on the development of experimental methodologies for atomic layers, aiming to elevate the realization of next-generation computing devices such as transistors, memristors, and qubits.


Synthesis of atomic layers and electronics

We develop chemical vapor deposition technologies to synthesize high-quality, large-scale 2D materials.


Smoothing of atomic layers for quantum devices

We study the fundamental of atomic layer etching/smoothing technology and its application on quantum computers.


Integration of atomic layers for electronic packaging

We utilize atomic materials to elevate the interconnects and packaging approaches for next-generation electronics.


Developing of autonomous nanofabrication

In the long term, we aim to merge machine-learning, thin-film synthesis, and atomic layer etching technologies to enable self-correction robotics for high-yield quantum computer fabrication.
