Workshop on: Two-Dimensional Materials: Probing the Limits of Physics and Engineering

Life and Matter Sciences International Symposium June 22-23, 2016 Madrid

Información general

Venue: Fundación Ramón Areces Vitruvio, 5. 28006 Madrid

In cooperation with:

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Coordinator/s:

Tomás Palacios Gutiérrez Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

 

 

Pablo Jarillo-Herrero Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT)

  • Description
  • Programme

Every few centuries, a new set of materials is discovered that changes the world. It happened with metals, polymers and semiconductors. The last 10 years have witnessed the development of an extraordinary group of new materials that could have a similar impact. These are called two-dimensional materials due to the fact that they are only a few atoms in thickness. These materials, out of which graphene is the best known example, offer extreme and amazing properties. For example, graphene is more than 200 times stronger than steel and much lighter. At the same time, it conducts electricity better than the best metal, while it can be switched on-and-off at much higher frequencies than the best silicon-based transistors. In this workshop, leading experts from academia and industry will present their vision for how the unique properties of these materials will revolutionize computers, wireless communications, energy storage, health care and many other fields. During the workshop, a roadmap will also be developed to guide industry on the progress and adoption of these revolutionary materials
