F.EL04.02.01—Lithium-Ion Electrolytic Substrates—TMD Growth and 1V High-Performance Transistors and Amplifiers
Deji Akinwande's work is news worthy because he’s using knowledge from the battery community and applying it to an entirely different set of applications in the electronics community. Specifically, he will report on using solid ion-conductors from the battery community to establish electric double layers to exert extreme control of charge transport in 2D materials. This is not only useful for the fundamental exploration of interesting physics in 2D materials, but also potentially useful for new types of electronic devices.
F.EL04.03.01—Probing Two-Dimensional Materials Using Focused Angle-Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy
Jyoti Katoch uses a state-of-the-art spectroscopy technique at the Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to investigate the fundamentals of 2D materials that are only a single atom or molecule thick. In this talk, she will discuss their advanced in-operando spectroscopy results that are enabling the discovery of new physics in 2D. The press should be interested because of the cutting -edge measurements and insights that Dr. Katoch is providing to the entire 2D community.
F.EL04.11.03—Nanophotonics with Low-Dimensional Excitonic Materials
Deep Jariwala endeavors to study novel optical phenomena in large area CVD-grown films of 2D materials. Specifically, he will show how 1D nanostructuring of excitonic 2D semiconductors into nanophotonic dielectric gratings can enable exploration of new regimes of light-matter confinement.
F.EL04.13/F.MT06.03.01—Interlayer Excitons in van der Waals Heterostructures
Philip Kim of Harvard will be giving the Keynote address at a joint session between EL04 and MT06. He is a leader in 2D materials, which have distinct and exciting physics compared to their 3D counterparts. The press would be interested in this talk because of the fundamental understanding that Kim will be present, and it could open all sorts of possibilities in the areas of low-power electronics, sensors, optoelectronics, and more.
