Meeting Description

The 2016 Gordon Conference on Two Dimensional Electronics Beyond Graphene will present cutting-edge research addressing the fundamental properties and potential uses of ultrathin layered systems with a fundamental band gap including transition metal dichalcogenides, group V systems including phosphorene, and related isoelectronic structures. Interdisciplinary research driven by experimentalists and theorists in the fields of Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Device Engineering contributes to the unprecedented growth in this area. Presentations and discussions will focus on questions including:

  • Which are the most promising aspects of 2D electronics in our 3D world?
  • What is the state of the art in the synthesis, assembly and passivation of 2D materials and related heterostructures?
  • What is our understanding of the unique behavior of 2D systems?
  • What is the promise of 2D systems for spintronics and optoelectronics?
  • Which are the fundamental advantages and disadvantages of 2D systems for electronics applications?
  • Are 2D materials viable candidates for electronics that would out-perform current silicon-based devices?
