Flatland of 2D Materials Beyond Graphene


The rapid pace of technological evolution has reached the stage where more economical and sustainable novel materials are highly demanding. Graphene was the first ever 2D material to have novel electrical, optical, and thermal properties, which made them qualified as a material of technological importance. What’s beyond just qualified? This talk will introduce the emergence of novel 2D materials, including transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). The talk will focus on how tuning the properties in various settings, such as heterostructures, nanotubes, and defects, provide a platform for electronics applications, energy conversion, and energy storage at the nanoscale.


Dr. Munish Sharma is an Assistant Professor at Maharaja Agrasen University, India. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Himachal Pradesh University (India) in 2017. He is a recipient of the prestigious DST-INSPIRE Award and worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow in an Indo-Swedish bilateral project at the Institute of Nanoscience and Technology, Mohali, India. He has published more than 45 papers in scientific journals. He pursues research in the realm of materials modeling using density functional theory. His research focuses on low-dimensional layered materials for energy conversion, storage, and next-generation electronics.
