CHEM ENG 7103 - Engineering of 2D Materials

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2020

The new field of two dimensional (2D) materials has seen exponential growth since the isolation of graphene, a single atomic layer of carbon atoms in 2004. The course will describe how a number of key aspects of the broader field of nanomaterials are applied to study 2D materials, including methods of production such as liquid phase exfoliation, characterisation techniques such as Raman spectroscopy and electron microscopy, and the production of nano-electronic and nano-composite structures. The course will cover fundamental and applied concepts of 2D materials engineering, and will be delivered through a combination of lectures and tutorials. The course should highlight the significance of emerging 2D materials in modern society, and contextualise the selection of engineering materials on the basis of their characteristics and end use applications.
