Hongwoo Baek

Hongwoo Baek is a CNST/SNU Postdoctoral Researcher in the Electron Physics Group.  She received a B.S. and a Ph.D. in Physics from Seoul National University, Korea.  Her doctoral research used scanning probe microscopy techniques to study monolayer and bilayer graphene on boron nitride substrates in order to characterize the effects of the graphene’s one-dimensional boundary on its electronic structure. Hongwoo is working with Joseph Stroscio as part of collaboration with Professor Young Kuk at Seoul National University using ultra-low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy to measure the electronic properties of layered materials, including graphene and topological insulators.
