Graphene and two-dimensional (2D) layered materials offer exciting new opportunities in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Graphene's unique electron transport properties have motivated intensive research and development to mold it into the electronic material of the future. However, graphene and 2D materials can be much more than an electrical switch. Their high structural integrity and chemical flexibility enable extensive control of its optical, mechanical, and electronic properties. We are interested in developing new materials and applications based on graphene and other 2D materials such as transition metal dichalcogenides (e.g., MoS2, WSe2, etc).
