Sunday, March 17
1:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Who Should Attend
Graduate students, post-docs, university faculty and industrial researchers interested in a broad introduction to the current state of the field of Graphene. We particularly encourage participation of graduate students and post-docs and each talk will begin from a level appropriate for junior researchers.
Graphene, recognized by the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics, has created a new field of research in condensed matter physics: two-dimensional crystals (2DC).
Contrary to the traditional two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) where electrons are trapped in a uniform potential, electrons in graphene and other 2DC move quantum mechanically through orbitals on crystalline lattices. As a consequence, the electronic and structural characteristics of these materials have emergent properties such as Lorentz invariance (Dirac liquids), as in the case of graphene, and even 2D quantum critical behavior (magnetism and superconductivity). These unusual properties are reflected in several different experimental probes with anomalous behavior that cannot be described by the traditional theory of metals and semiconductors. Furthermore, 2DC can be used as a scaffold for a large number of different applications such as flexible and transparent electronics, chemical and photo sensors, energy storage and conversion, among others.
The goal of this tutorial is to provide an introduction to the basic concepts in graphene, and an overview of the recent closely related theoretical and experimental developments in the field.
