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.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
