  • Strain enables new applications of 2D materials

    Superconductors' never-ending flow of electrical current could provide new options for energy storage and superefficient electrical transmission and generation, to name just a few benefits. But the signature zero electrical resistance of superconductors is reached only below a certain critical tempe more

  • Substrate defects key to growth of 2D materials

    Creating two-dimentional materials large enough to use in electronics is a challenge despite huge effort but now, Penn State researchers have discovered a method for improving the quality of one class of 2D materials, with potential to achieve wafer-scale growth in the future. The field of 2D materi more

  • Unprecedented insight into two-dimensional magnets using diamond quantum sensors

    For the first time, physicists at the University of Basel have succeeded in measuring the magnetic properties of atomically thin van der Waals materials on the nanoscale. They used diamond quantum sensors to determine the strength of the magnetization of individual atomic layers of the material chro more

What is graphene?

What is graphene? Graphene is the world's first 2D material which was initially isolated in 2004. It was discovered after scientists at The University of Manchester separated one atomic layer of graphite using simple sticky tape. This short animation takes a look at how graphene was isolated and ... more

2-D layered devices can self-assemble with precision

  • Chemical sensing with 2D materials

    During the last decade, two-dimensional materials (2DMs) have attracted great attention due to their unique chemical and physical properties, which make them appealing platforms for diverse applications in opto-electronic devices, energy generation and storage, and sensing. Among their various extra more

  • Periodic and nonperiodic chiral self-assembled networks from 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid on Ag(111)

    Surface-catalyzed reactions provide a versatile route to synthesizing new 2D materials. Here, we show that the statistical nature of an activated reaction can lead to a diversity of intermolecular bonding motifs through partially-reacted molecules. With increasing annealing, we observe different per more

  • Preparation of 2D material dispersions and their applications

    Extensive research on two-dimensional (2D) materials has triggered the renaissance of an old topic, that is, the intercalation and exfoliation of layer materials. Such top-down exfoliation produced 2D materials and their dispersions have several advantages including low cost, scalable production cap more
