The continuing trend to miniaturization of devices in modern technology faces fundamental physical limits of applied materials. The search for novel structures with new functionalities has brought atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials into the focus of current research. They represent a new class of materials that are characterized by a wide range of exceptional optical, electronic, mechanical, chemical, and thermal properties suggesting technological application in next-generation flexible and transparent nanoelectronic devices.
The Graphene Centre at Chalmers (GCC) organizes the Initiative Seminar 2018 of the Excellence Initiative Nano. The focus lies on atomically thin 2D materials (beyond graphene) and includes in particular monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides and related van der Waals heterostructures. The seminar will cover fundamental and application-oriented research including areas of electronics and photonics, composites and coatings, energy and bio applications.
