Symposium QN01—2D Layered Materials Beyond Graphene—Theory, Discovery and Design
Two-dimensional (2D) materials provide unique materials platform with rich physics, chemistry and diverse technological applications. Extensive progress has been made in understanding, synthesizing, and characterizing 2D materials such as graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, and boron nitride. Many exciting new discoveries have been reported in the last decade, including novel topological, magnetic, optoelectronic, nanoplasmonic, organic, hybrid 2D materials etc., offering greater opportunities for fundamental science and technologies. Recent advances in the development of predictive theory, high-throughput simulations, 2D materials genome, and data-driven materials discovery play more and more important role in accelerating the design and synthesis of functional 2D materials. With the advent of advanced first-principles theories and increase in computational power, it is possible to conduct accurate high-throughput materials computations, construct 2D materials database with the computed physical and chemical properties, and expedite materials discovery and design by taking advantage of machine learning algorithms. Furthermore, theory and simulation provide valuable physical insights that are not accessible by experiments, and in addition, enable high quality predictions that are verifiable by experiments.
This symposium will focus on the forefront of theory, discovery, and design of novel 2D materials beyond graphene. Abstracts are solicited in the areas of interest including theory and computational modeling of 2D materials; 2D materials genome and data-driven discoveries; development of accessible and sustainable data infrastructure; advanced simulations of material properties in conjunction with new 2D device functionalities.
