Two-dimensional Materials and Heterostructures

Wednesday, January 8, 2020 12:30 pm - 12:30 pm EST

Phys10 Undergraduate Seminar Series

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.

This talk is geared toward an upper year audience; as always, everyone is welcome to attend.
