Symposium NM04-Advanced Manufacturing of 2D Materials at the Atomic Scale

Manufacturing of new materials, new structures, and traditional materials with new architectures represents a new way to engineer materials functions and relies on understandings from materials and mechanical sciences. Recent advancement in fabricating 2D materials and manipulating materials structures with high precision has extended our capability to build and study the emerging mechanical, chemical, and electronic properties from the atomic scale. This symposium will cover recent progress in techniques that allow the manufacturing of 2D material-based devices and characterization of their fabrication and operation. The program will emphasize the development of new tools, including those using electron, ion, optical, and scanning probes, for reliable, repeatable, and scalable, nano- and atomic-scale fabrication of 2D materials or other low dimensional structures. Additionally, this symposium will focus on the properties, such as transport, heat transfer, and mechanical strength, and their correlation with the dimension and assembly of the new structures. Methods of in situ characterization, big data analysis, machine learning approaches, and high throughput experimentations and calculations to understand the dynamics and probe-materials interactions are welcome. The symposium will identify potential and promising methods in advanced manufacturing of low-dimensional structures, bridge mechanistic studies with practical fabrications, and encourage the application of atomistic understanding to applied science.

Topics will include:

  • Electron beam engineering of 2D materials
  • New structure formation under high energy ions
  • 2D electronics
  • In situ characterization of materials dynamics during advanced materials manufacturing
  • Materials chemistry confined on 2D surfaces
  • Interaction of high energy electron, ion, and laser with materials
  • Artificial intelligence guided new manufacturing
  • Mechanical properties of hybrid 2D materials
  • New instrumentation for atomic scale materials fabrication
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
