We investigate the optical properties of two-dimensional materials using optical and magneto-optical spectroscopy, often along with electrical transport measurements. In conjunction with coworkers at NIST, we investigate two-dimensional layers of one material embedded in a cladding layer of another; for instance, graphene, or molybdenum disulfide surrounded by boron nitride. We investigate the optical and optoelectronic properties associated with Landau-level physics, the two-dimensional excitonic structure, and optical properties of pseudo-spin states associated with the unique band structure of these materials.
