3rd Graphene Flagship EU-Japan Workshop on graphene and related 2D materials

The 3rd EU-Japan Workshop was held on 9-11 November 2018, at Tohoku University, in Sendai, Japan. This workshop provides the opportunity for Japanese and European researchers to discuss and exchange information on the progress in the area of graphene and related two-dimensional (2D) materials (GRM), fundamental physical phenomena and devices. The aim is to facilitate scientific exchanges and identify the needs and mechanisms for future collaborations.

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; and
  • GRM-based functional device technology including terahertz, plasmonic and optoelectronic devices based on GRM including detectors, emitters, modulators and sensors.

The workshop was co-organized by Japanese and European scientists and co-funded by the European Graphene Flagship and the Japan Science and Technology Agency.
