Symposium EN06-Emerging Energy Applications of Low-Dimensional Layered and Crystalline Materials

Materials that implement intrinsically reduced dimensionality, including layered 2D materials and low-dimensional (0D, 1D, 2D) hybrid organic inorganic halide perovskites (HOIP) have been attracting enormous attention owing to their unique properties, such as their layer dependent band gap, piezoelectricity, strong light absorption, magnetism, and their polymorphism. These properties enable tuning of electronic, optical, chemical and catalytic functionality via engineering structure, doping, and phase transitions. This symposium will showcase the use of these materials for a wide range of energy applications including theoretical modeling/simulations, materials applications, materials synthesis, and advanced characterization of materials.This symposium will highlight applications where layered 2D and low dimensional crystalline materials are the main active component such as battery electrodes, fuel cells, emitting diodes, photodetectors (including chiroptical emission and detection), supercapacitors, piezoelectrics, thermoelectrics, magnetoelectrics and (photo)electrocatalysis.

Topics will include:

  • 2D layered transition-metal di-/tri-chalcogenides, MXenes, transition metal oxides, graphene, group-III/-IV chalcogenides, graphitic carbon nitride, 0D, 1D, 2D hybrid halide perovskite (HOIP), layered covalent-organic framework
  • 2D materials for energy or hydrogen storage, water splitting, catalysis, thermo/magneto//ferroelectricity, light emission and detection.
  • 2D materials and Low-Dimensional HOIP electronic, chemical and catalytic functionality via engineering structure, doping, and phase transitions.
  • Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and computational methods for structure description and discovery
