  Doctor Jian’s research interests consist of electron transport, field-effect transport, and thermoelectric transport of electrons in low-dimensional systems including zero-dimensional (0D) quantum dots, one-dimensional nanowires (1D), and two-dimensional (2D) nanosheets (2D materials). He currently focuses on 2D materials including graphene, MoS2, black phosphorous, WSe2, ReSe2, and TaS2. In addition, he is interested in biomaterials like Ni-DNA nanowires. He works with Profs. Chia-Ching Chang and Yu-Chang Chen in the bio-related research field. On the other hand, he develops many commercial products of instruments including scanning tunneling microscope, demagnetizer, electro-explored nanoparticle generator, transmission optical microscope, and many other automatic machines.
