Abstract: Dimensionality effect has been found interesting in exploring new physics and effective in engineering materials’ physical properties. However, often intrinsic material behaviors are clouded by the underlying support through strongly-coupled interface. In this talk, I will show our efforts and discovery on developing weakly-coupled epitaxial interface for semiconducting halides. I will present the serendipity and challenges while working on complex oxide interfaces.
