The Emergence of the Flatlands: Synthesis, Characterization and Application of Two-Dimensional Materials

Two-dimensional (2D) materials, such as Graphene, h-BN and MoS2, are promising candidates in a number of advanced functional and structural applications, owing to their exceptional electrical, thermal and mechanical properties. In this talk, we first discuss the synthesis of high quality 2D materials and related heterostructures, with our current understanding of some underlying mechanisms. Next, we will report the electrical, opto-electrical and mechanical characterizations of the synthesized 2D materials, with an emphasis on the effect of defects on relevant properties. Finally, we will demonstrate some potential applications of selected 2D materials including using h-BN as high-performance oxidation resistant and anti-corrosion coatings, and 2D catalyst for hydrogen evolution reactions.
