Peng Chen received his Ph.D. from University of Tennessee in 2013. He worked at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory as a postdoctoral research fellow from 2014 to 2019. He joined Shanghai Jiao Tong University as a faculty member in 2019. He was awarded Eugene John Barber Fellowship by University of Tennessee in 2012, DMP Post-Doctoral Travel Grand Award by American Physical Society in 2017, and the Talents award in 2019.

His scientific interests lie in the ultra-thin film growth and exploration of novel physics with spin-, angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. The research focuses on investigation of electronic properties of two-dimensional materials and the coupling with lattice, spin, and orbital. With reduced dimension, novel properties like high temperature superconductivity, multiferroicity will emerge from quantum confinement and coherent coupling among composite component. 

Research Interests:

  1.  Surface and interface-induced physics

  2. Atomic-level novel quantum materials growth by molecular beam epitaxy

  3.  Spin-, angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy
