Two-dimensional (2D) atomic crystals are recently discovered materials that are only atoms thick, and yet can span laterally over millimeters. The diverse family of such materials includes graphene: a semimetal with massless relativistic charge carriers, and monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), such as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2): direct band gap semiconductors with strong spin-orbit interaction. In this presentation, AKM Newaz will talk about the electrical and optical properties of 2D atomic crystals and future device applications.
