Research Field: Two-dimensional Atomic Crystals: Materials, Physics, and Electronic Devices. FAQ


3D materials are everywhere around us. Different from the 3D materials, 2D materials are planar, only one-atom-thick, and behave differently. 2D material can be deemed as a model system for addressing some fundamental problems existed in the field of low-dimensional physics. Besides, 2D materials are also very useful due to their one-atom-thick nature and remarkable properties, as proposed by many as the new materials alternative for electronic devices.

This group (N07-IoP-CAS) aims to study both fundamental properties of these 2D materials and explore their potential applications in nanoscale and molecular electronics and optoelectronics. 2D materials we are focusing on right now are graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, transition metal dichalcogenides (MoS2, WS2, MoSe2, WSe2, etc.), and their heterostructures. Our research covers the field of material science, physics, and electrical engineering.

The research topics in this group include, but are not limited to, the following: 1) Developing new techniques for 2D materials fabrication; 2) Band structure engineering of various 2D materials; 3)Stacked 2D material van der Waals heterostructures; 4) Novel quantum transport in laterally confined system; 5) 2D materials based nano-devices for electronics.
