  • Neural Hardware for Image Recognition in Nanoseconds

    Automatic image recognition is widely used today: There are computer programs that can reliably diagnose skin cancer, navigate self-driving cars, or control robots. Up to now, all this has been based on the evaluation of image data as delivered by normal cameras - and that is time-consuming. Especia more

  • Fast and furious: New class of 2D materials stores electrical energy

    Two dimensional titanium carbides, so-called MXenes, are being discussed as candidates for the rapid storage of electrical energy. Like a battery,MXenes can store large amounts of electrical energy through electrochemical reactions- but unlike batteries,can be charged and discharged in a matter of s more

  • A fast light detector made of two-dimensional materials

    Two research groups at ETH Zurich have joined forces to develop a novel light detector. It consists of two-​dimensional layers of different materials that are coupled to a silicon optical waveguide. In the future, this approach can also be used to make LEDs and optical modulators. Fast and highly ef 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
