Back by popular demand! 

Our professors had such a great time in Toronto last year,  they insisted on a second round!

One again we're bringing a little bit of the Faculty of Science to Toronto for some casual academic conversations.  Pull up a chair, have a drink and a few munchies on us, and engage in some spirited discussions with various science faculty members.

Professor Wei Tsen (UW Chemistry/IQC) 

The discovery of graphene and other two-dimensional (2D) materials has led to a new vanguard in condensed matter physics. Not only does dimensionality allow for robust control of the electronic properties of layered materials, novel heterostructures with no traditional analog can further be created by interfacing different 2D species. In this talk, I will give an overview of the 2D materials field, discuss a few recent breakthroughs, and present some of our own results on 2D magnetic systems.
