Atomic Engineering


"The best way to predict the future is to invent it." – Alan Kay

Welcome to the homepage of Atomic Engineering Group at Yale University, devoted to the advancement of atom manipulation techniques at room temperature using electron beam. Our collective endeavor is centered around the meticulous control of individual atoms involving (1) tailor lattice structures at the atomic scale, and (2) manipulation of atomic species. By pushing the boundaries of atom-level control, we strive to transcend conventional material synthesis limitations.

Our research entails many aspects of materials research, spanning across materials synthesis, atomic imaging, optical spectroscopy, device fabrication, and first-principles calculation. The implications of such "atomic engineered materials" span various domains, including quantum information science, single-atom catalysis, semiconductor devices, etc..

Join us on this transformative journey as we engineer the future, one atom at a time!

*A note about our logo: "A" consists of the trajectory of electron around the nucleus of an atom, and "E" depicts the side view of layered materials. In fact, "Æ" is a character that exists in many languages that have Latin origins.
