“The science and technology of 2D materials” symposium at the 21st International conference on Solid State Ionics“The science and technology of 2D materials” symposium at the 21st International conference on Solid State IonicsExternal EventPadova, Italy 07:00:00 and related bi-dimensional (2D) materials and hybrid structures (GRM) have a combination of properties that could make them key enablers in many application fields, generating new products not obtainable with current materials. To fully exploit the technological advantages offered by GRMs it is essential to acquire the ability to select, control and manipulate individual and/or stacked GRMs. There has been much progress in the synthesis, via both top down and bottom up approaches, and characterization of GRMs. However, several challenges remain in understanding their properties and interactions with external probes to realize their tremendous potential for applications. A key area relies on the development of advanced methods to produce cheap GRMs, combining structural functions with embedded (opto)electronics, in an environmentally sustainable manner. Other challenges extend to development of GRMs-based energy devices for conversion and storage as well as advancements toward the realization of novel sensors and composites that take advantage of the GRMs chemical, biological and mechanical properties. Graphene is the latest carbon allotrope to be experimentally discovered, and it is now at the centre of a significant experimental research effort after the initial stage devoted to study its fundamental physical properties. In particular, near-ballistic transport at room temperature and high carrier mobilities make it a potential material for microelectronics, especially for high frequency applications. It is now possible to produce graphene samples with areas exceeding thousands of square centimetres by means of chemical vapour deposition (CVD), and inks with controlled morphological and rheological properties. An ongoing effort is being devoted to large-scale production and growth of high quality graphene on different substrates of choice, i.e. dielectrics, via CVD. Graphene is important not only for its own properties, but at an even higher level because it provides the first demonstration of a truly 2D material. Therefore, it is the paradigm for a new class of materials such as chalcogenides, metal oxides that like graphite are formed by coupling between atomically thin layers via van der Waals forces The resulting 2D crystals have shown a variety of novel thermal and electrical properties, and are of interest for both fundamental studies and practical applications. Recent developments in synthesis, structural characterizations, properties, and applications of GRMs for the conversion (photovoltaics, thermoelectric, fuel cells) and storage (e.g., batteries, supercapacitors) of energy, as well as in the field of microelectronics, sensors and robotics will be the focus of the symposium. Abstracts are solicited in, but not necessarily limited to, the following areas Progress in the synthesis of graphene/2d crystals/hybrid systems; Doping and functionalization (chemical modification); Electronic, optical, thermal, chemical, and mechanical properties of 2D crystals; Assembly of 2d sheets into controlled 3d architectures and superlattices structures; Theoretical modeling of electronic, thermal, optical, chemical and mechanical properties of 2d crystals; Novel characterization techniques; Photoconductivity, thermoelectricity, and energy storage and conversion; Fabrication and characterization of GRM-based flexible devices, sensors, actuators; Meso- and Macro-scale systems - composites and thin films; Applications and commercialisation; Health/toxicity related issues. In this Symposium are also welcome those contributions which cover the topics beyond the above-described areas. This is done to provide the audience with a comprehensive description of Solid State Ionics. If your contribution is difficult to host within the above areas, please do not hesitate to contact directly the Conference Chairmen at for advice.21/03/2017 12:10:12080457aspx19

Explore graphene

What is graphene?
Graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms – may be the most amazing and versatile substance available to mankind.
The history of graphene
If you have ever drawn with a pencil, you’ve probably made graphene.
The European roadmap for graphene science and technology
This roadmap was developed within the framework of the Graphene Flagship and outlines the main targets and research areas as best understood at the start of this ambitious project.

About the Project
