2nd EU-Japan Workshop on graphene and 2D related materials

The second Graphene Flagship EU–Japan Workshop was held at the Casa Convalescència, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona Campus in Barcelona (Spain), during 6 - 8 May 2017. Co-organised by the Graphene Flagship and the Japanese Science and Technology Agency (JST), CREST and Science of Atomic Layers (SATL) project, the workshop focused on material production and device fabrication, and exploration of electronic, photonics, and spintronics in novel structures.

The workshop provided the opportunity for Japanese and European researchers to discuss and exchange on the progress in the areas of graphene and related two-dimensional (2D) materials(GRM), fundamental physical phenomena, and devices. The aim was to facilitate scientific exchanges and identify needs and mechanisms for future collaborations. This was a follow-up to the first Japan-EU Workshop held in Tokyo, Japan from 31 October to –2 November 2015.

The workshop broadly covered the following areas:

  • Graphene and related 2D materials with emphasis on materials synthesis and characterisation with special focus on Boron Nitride (BN) and Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDs)
  • Study of fundamental physical properties of graphene/2D related (GRM) materials and heterostructures including 2D superconductivity, topological and transport properties, spin –and valley-tronics.
  • Terahertz(THz), plasmonic and optoelectronic devices based on GRMincluding detectors, emitters, modulators and sensors.

The programme featured 23 scientific presentations that showcased the breadth of activities and topics covered by the respective research groups in the field of 2D materials synthesis, characterisation, properties, and devices, each followed by questions and discussions.
