Magical 2D Materials


Two dimensional (2D) electron transport has been one of the most important topics in science and technology for decades. It was originally studied in 3D semiconductors and then continued in 2D van der Waals (vdW) crystals. In this talk, I will start with the large-scale processes for generating 2D crystalline semiconductor films and superlattices that could be used to fabricate atomically thin integrated circuits. Then we will discuss more recent directions, where we use these 2D materials to realize non-electronic, “magical” 2D transport phenomena, observed from phonons, photons, and mass. These new approaches could empower the development of 2D phononics, 2D photonics, and 2D mechanics.


Jiwoong Park is a professor in Chemistry and Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago and chair of the Department of Chemistry. His research group is working on the science and technology of atomically thin crystalline materials and has developed methods for chemically synthesizing and controlling 2D van der Waals crystals and molecular structures to produce real, large-scale materials useful for future applications. He authored more than 100 journal articles, including about 20 papers in Science and Nature.

He received a B.S. degree from Seoul National University (1996) and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley (2003; advisor: Prof. Paul McEuen). Before coming to the University of Chicago in 2016, he was a faculty member at Cornell University (2006-2016). Park currently serves as an associate editor of Nano Letters.
