Materials in 2-dimension and Beyond: 10 Years After Graphene

Speaker: Philip Kim , Department of Physics , Harvard University
Location: Spalding Laboratory 106 (Hartley Memorial Seminar Room)

The recent advent of atomically thin 2-dimensional materials such as graphene, hexa boronitride, layered transition metal chalcogenide and many strongly correlated materials, has provide a new opportunity of studying novel quantum phenomena in low dimensional systems. In particular, graphene has been provided us opportunities to explore exotic transport effect in low-energy condensed matter systems. Moreover, combination of different layered constituents may produce heterogeneous and functional materials. In this lecture, we will discuss novel electron transport phenomena across the heterointerfaces in atomically controlled van der Waals quantum heterostructures.
