Symposium NM08—2D Atomic and Molecular Sheets—Electronic and Photonic Properties and Device Applications
The research in two-dimensional (2D) materials is a highly multidisciplinary field with rapidly emerging scientific breakthroughs and technological innovations that can impact many existing and emerging technological fields in the years to come. This symposium aims to cover existing and emerging topics in 2D materials electronics and photonics research, with an emphasis on their device application in neuromorphic electronics and quantum information processing. The sessions will discuss scalable synthesis of electronic-grade layers, and novel synthesis routes for 2D materials, as well as on the discovery and characterization of electronic and optical properties in emerging 2D materials. The symposium will also emphasize on the electronic and photonic device applications, particularly in the areas of neuromorphic computing and quantum information processing, as well as in the next-generation sensor and energy technologies. We will cover topics on scalable 2D material electronic and photonic device fabrication; 2D material sensor and energy devices; 2D material memory and artificial synaptic devices for advanced computation architectures; and novel 2D materials based device concepts for quantum computation and communication. Multidisciplinary research areas associated with materials science, physics, chemistry and device engineering will be linked by invited talks to facilitate the discussion about understanding new material properties and the benchmarking and development of these materials towards applications.
