Symposium EL09-Layered (2D) Optoelectronic Materials and Devices

Semiconducting materials that exist in layered (2D) form like the transition metal dichalcogenides, perovskites and metal oxides bring new opportunities for optoelectronic applications, as they combine the unique characteristics of nanomaterial with ease of fabrication because of their planar configuration. These are emerging materials, that have a potential to form a core research topic in future. This symposium will focus on new developments in layered optoelectronic materials and their applications. This symposium will cover modelling, synthesis/growth, characterisation and applications of layered (two dimensional) optoelectronic materials and will bring together chemists, physicists and engineers.

The symposium can be broadly categorised into three parts. The first part of the symposium will focus on modelling for predictions and new discoveries, material synthesis and structural and optoelectronic characterisation. Submissions on insights into material growth mechanisms, engineering structure/composition to enable new applications and large area synthesis are encouraged. Emerging materials like 2D perovskites and metal oxides and hybrid heterostructures of layered materials will be included in this section of the symposium. Second part of the symposium will focus on light manipulation applications, and will include nano-lasers and LEDs, quantum nanophotonic devices and applications of non-linear properties of layered materials. Final section of the symposium will focus on biosensing and energy related applications of layered optoelectronic materials. The planar configuration and very high surface area to volume ratio makes layered optoelectronic materials ideal for such applications. Wearable and flexible devices will be included in this section of the symposium. Submissions on novel device configurations and fabrication approaches are encouraged for the sessions on applications of layered optoelectronic material.

  • Synthesis of 2D optoelectronic materials and their heterostructures
