OVERVIEW

 

Since the first reported isolation of graphene via mechanical exfoliation in 2004, the family of novel two-dimensional (2D) materials keeps expanding. Single layers of boron nitride, silicon, boron, germanium, phosphorus, transition metal dichalcogenides (MoS2, WS2, MoSe2, WSe2, MoTe2), as well as heterostructures mixing several of those have been produced in laboratory. These 2D materials present a wealth of unique physical properties not always present in the bulk. Recent advances in growth and fabrication techniques at the atomic scale brought the investigation of 2D materials to reality. Engineering materials at nanoscale opens novel perspectives in the next generation of technologies from electronics to renewable energy. Due to the confinement found at reduced dimensionality systems, 2D systems present unusual physical properties, and a better understanding of these is still lagging. In particular, synthesis, characterization and transport properties of several 2D materials are still not well understood today. Nonetheless, understanding, and perhaps more importantly, controlling the physical properties of novel 2D materials is a fundamental step for their application in the next generation of electronic devices.

This combined school and workshop will bring together scientists specialized in theoretical, experimental and computational tools, to present the latest advances in methodology and techniques applied to the study of 2D materials. All aspects of 2D materials from fundamental properties to applications will be discussed, including recent advances on synthesis, characterization, modeling, and devices. Furthermore, particular attention will be given to spin-related phenomena in 2D materials, focusing on the emerging area of 2D spintronics. This event will also promote the interaction among scientists working on the field of 2D materials with the aim of advancing the current understanding of their physical properties.. This topic converges the interests of scientists and engineers that traditionally have different backgrounds and belong to diverse communities, and while sharing similar interests do not communicate often. Physicists, chemists and engineers will be involved in the event. Finally, the workshop will provide an opportunity for the relatively small - but growing - community working in the area of 2D materials in Brazil to interact directly with other scientists with similar interests, both from Brazil and abroad.
 

Workshop mini-courses:

 

Week 1
Plasmonic Properties of Graphene - Nuno Peres
Applications of 2D materials - Eric Pop

Week 2
Group theory applied to 2D materials - Luiz Gustavo Cançado
Electron Microscopy in Low-dimensional Materials - Juan Carlos Idrobo

Week 3
Spin transport in 2D materials and van der Waals heterostructures - Stephan Roche and Roland R. Kawakami

 

 

The main topics that will be discussed at the workshop:

 

  • Growth and synthesis of 2D materials;
  • Characterization techniques for 2D materials;
  • Computer simulations of 2D materials;
  • Theoretical methods applied to 2D materials;
  • Charge, heat and spin transport in 2D materials;
  • Mechanical properties of 2D materials;
  • Applications and devices based on 2D materials.
