Welcome to the Dean Lab



"To make an experimental discovery, it is not enough to observe something, 
one must also realize the significance
of the observation"

- Ivar Giaever

The Dean Lab is an experimental condensed matter physics laboratory at Columbia University in the city of New York. We study novel 2D materials for a wide range of multidisciplinary efforts with collaborations across Physics, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, Opto-electronics, Chemistry and even Biology.
