Symposium

2D Layered Materials

Scope

Two-dimensional (2D) layered compounds are highly anisotropic materials exhibiting unique properties originating at their saturation of chemical bonding within two-dimensional layers. A number of layered materials have been fabricated into monolayers or multilayers, and found to exhibits unexpected properties that are distinct from their bulk counterparts. Such ultrathin materials keep offering novel physical concepts including Dirac electrons, 2D semiconductors, superconductors, magnets, polar metals, and topological matters. Furthermore, the van der Waals nature of the interlayer interaction in these materials allows novel stacking of different materials with a huge lattice mismatch, and even with arbitrary tilting angles. This produces so called van der Waals heterostructures that exceed the conventional concept of epitaxy. Related materials are extremely rich, stemming from single component graphene, silicene, and black phosphorous to transition metal chalcogenides, oxides, Mxene, and MOFs. The purpose of this symposium is to provide a forum for overviewing and discussing the latest progresses in materials, physics, and chemistry of all kinds of 2D layered materials. Topics include synthesis, and basic physical and chemical properties, as well as a vast varieties of functionalities including electronic and optoelectronic devices, catalyst, energy harvesting and storage.
