Symposium NM07-Mixed Dimensional Heterostructures—From Synthesis to Application

Engineered heterostructures formed with dissimilar material systems is the driving force for developing many electronic/optoelectronic devices. Especially, mixed dimensional heterostructures formed with 0D, 1D, 2D, and 3D materials together can offer unique multifunctionalities that cannot be otherwise obtained by pure 1D or 2D or 3D materials. Heterogenous integration can substantially alter the electrical, magnetic, optical, and thermal properties and result in tremendous intriguing functionalities. Thus, a great deal of efforts has been made to form unprecedented device architectures via heterostructuring various dimensional materials. To obtain heterostructured systems with high quality interfaces, significant progress has been made on in-situ growth or ex-situ transfer techniques. These are critical to obtain extensive and flexible designs of heterostructures. In this symposium, we provide the opportunity for speakers and audience to share the progress in research of mixed dimensional material heterostructures which include the methods for synthesis, growth, transfer, lift-off, and even scale-up and device applications. The goal of the symposium is to allow the community to come together to advance the heterostructuring concept from the existing 2D heterostructures to mixed dimensional heterostructures for electronic, photonic, and electrochemical applications.

The symposium will cover a complete range of topics related to heterogeneous integration of various dimensional materials from fundamentals to applications. Interdisciplinary topics related to physics, materials science and engineering will be connected by invited talks in order to accelerate the development of various dimensional heterostructures and their applications. The session will also be dedicated to motivate discussions toward emerging technology to develop new types of heterogeneously integrated structures using 0D, 1D, 2D, and 3D materials.

Topics will include:

  • Remote epitaxy and van der Waals epitaxy of semiconductors, complex oxides, and 2D materials
  • Lift-off technology (mechanical, optical and chemical)
  • Freestanding membrane technology
  • Synthesis of various dimensional materials (0D, 1D, 2D, 3D) and their hetero-structures
  • Heterogeneous integration of various dimensional materials and their applications
  • Optical, electrical and magnetic interaction at the hetero-interface
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
