【TSE Lectures天地现代讲坛海外版】6月26日Columbia University Prof. James Hone学术报告


 Nanjing Distinguished Lecture Series in Transformative Science and Engineering (TSE Lectures)   was conceived by a visionary group of faculty and staff at the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Nanjing University. The main goal is to invite world-class scholars to visit Nanjing University and to speak on emerging and cross-cutting topics such as new materials, bioengineering, wearable devices, big data, optoelectronics, nanotechnology, and energy.       


      我们有幸邀请到Columbia University Prof. James Hone,作为TSE Lectures系列讲座的第三讲嘉宾。Prof. James Hone 学术报告信息见下,欢迎各位老师和同学参加!

题目:Techniques and Materials for Van der Waals Heterostructures 

摘要:Artificial van der Waals heterostructures of two-dimensional materials offer the possibility of creating layered structures with a wide variety of starting materials and control of composition at the single atomic layer limit. To create such structures, we developed a van der Waals transfer technique which largely eliminates interfacial contamination. We have used this technique to encapsulate 2D materials within crystalline h-BN with nearly perfect interfaces, which allows for near-intrinsic behavior in materials such as graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides semiconductors, and 2D superconductors. However, significant challenges toward functional heterostructures remain. This talk will detail our recent progress in the materials engineering for van der Waals heterostructures, including control over disorder, achieving robust electrical contacts, controlling interlayer rotation angle, and improving the quality of the constituent materials.
