Tailoring 2D materials via interface engineering

2D materials are crystalline materials with only a single layer thickness. The best known 2D materials is graphene, but it also encompasses a large family of materials , such as transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs).2D materials are set for breakthroughs in fundamental research and transformative technologies. They have few surface dangling bonds and unique atomic-level uniformity which make them very appealing for developing optical, electronic and energy applications.These materials also bring a new degree of freedom to combine highly distinct materials, …

2D heterostructures for future electronics

The traditional approach to the miniaturisation of electronic devices is coming to a halt. Experts agree that the Moore’s law prediction of doubling the number of transistors per chip every two years will cease to be fulfilled in 2020, as the heat produced in small structures cannot be cooled down quickly enough.However, by reducing the size of the device, the quantum nature of atoms and solids can be turned into an asset. By exploiting the phenomena occurring at these scales, …

Surface engineering for nanoelectronic devices

Ga2O3 is an emerging wide-bandgap semiconducting material that has received enormous attention in recent years. This is due to its potential application in power devices, UV detectors and military applications that are unattainable by conventional semiconductors such as silicon.The operation and performance of these type of electronic devices rely critically on the surface quality and properties of the semiconducting materials. However, the surface atomic structures and electronic structures of Ga2O3 single crystals are not yet fully understood.The principal aim of …

New 2D heterostructures on silicon carbide for two dimensional electronics

Graphene has attracted a great deal of interest due to its remarkable electronic, optical and mechanical properties. However the absence of a bandgap limits its use in many applications.Future applications in nanoelectronics will depend critically on the development of novel approaches to introduce a bandgap while preserving carrier mobility. An example includes stacking graphene with other two-dimensional (2D) materials with complementary properties.This project will look at systematically refining the integration of different 2D materials with graphene grown epitaxially on silicon …
