Why Graphene Week?
It is really my great pleasure and honor to participate in this great activity. Graphene Week is the most influential conference on graphene and related two-dimensional materials. It is also a great opportunity to meet with old and new friends to learn and share.
What will you talk about?
I will talk about “graphene-on-surfaces”. For graphene, especially chemical vapor deposited films on metal substrates, they must be transferred onto other substrates for further applications. Because of the atomic thinness of graphene, its integration into a device will always involve its interaction with supporting substrates, making this interaction critical to its real-life applications. My talk will focus on three “graphene-on-surfaces” hybrid structures (graphene-on-semiconductor, graphene-on-polymer and graphene-on-ceramic) and their uses in energy, environmental and sensing areas. Graphene has the potential for creating thin film devices, owing to its two-dimensionality and structural flatness. Assembling graphene-based building blocks into hybrid structures and composites with diverse targeted structures has a wealth of implications for understanding its new properties and expanding the potential applications.
