讲座题目：2D Materials, Heterostructures and Devices: Opportunities and Challenges
Two-dimensional layered materials (2DLMs), such as graphene or molybdenum disulfide, represent an ideal 2D material system for exploring fundamental chemistry and physics at the limit of single atomic thickness. The covalently bonded atomic layers in 2DLMs are bound weakly to each other through van der Waals interactions, which offers considerable flexibility to isolate, mix and match individual atomic layers without the constraints of lattice and processing compatibility. Here I will focus my discussion on exploring these 2D materials and their heterostructures as new platforms for the creation of a wide of electronic and optoelectronic devices with unique functions or unprecedented performance.
Prof. Duan received his B.S. Degree from University of Science and Technology of China in 1997, and Ph.D. degree from Harvard University in 2002. Prof. Duan joined UCLA, and was promoted to Full Professor in 2013. Prof. Duan has published over 180 papers in leading scientific journals, and holds over 40 issued US patents. Prof. Duan has received many awards, including Beilby Medal and Prize (2013), Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (2011), NASA Nanotech Brief ’Nano 50‘ Innovator Award (2006).
