NM07 Beyond Graphene 2D Materials—Synthesis, Properties and Device Applications
Two-dimensional (2D) materials with atom-scale thicknesses have spawned a new frontier in materials research. While graphene attracted the majority of attention in the early days of 2D materials research, other classes of 2D materials beyond graphene soon captivated the interest of the physics, chemistry, engineering, and materials science communities. Given the massive interest in and rapid pace of development in 2D materials, this symposium aims to (i) curate leading research results, (ii) cultivate a diverse community of scholars, and (iii) provide a roadmap for future research opportunities. The symposium will focus on elemental 2D materials beyond graphene (e.g. phosphorene, borophene, silicene, antimonene and germanene), compound 2D materials (e.g. transition metal chalcogenides), layered metal oxides and halides, organic-inorganic metal halide layered perovskites, and 2D molecular frameworks. The symposium will focus on the synthesis, fundamental properties, characterization, device physics studies, and applications of these materials. New synthetic strategies for controlled growth of 2D materials, in situ and other advanced analytical techniques, and device architectures for quantum information science are emerging areas of interest and will be the subjects of special focus in this symposium. This symposium expects to bring together a broad community of researchers from a variety of disciplines including materials science, surface science, inorganic chemistry, condensed matter physics, device engineering, and quantum information science.
