Graphene Flagship

Work Package
Fundamental science of graphene and 2D materials beyond graphene

Work package Leader: Vladimir Falko, University of Lancaster, United Kingdom
Work package Deputy Leader: Alberto Morpurgo, University of Geneva, Switzerland

Fundamental and blue-sky studies of graphene and complementary 2D materials have a twofold aim for the group “Fundamental science of graphene and 2D materials beyond graphene”. The group studies the fundamental mechanisms that determine and may limit the potential of graphene in already foreseen electronic and optoelectronics applications, and develop a second generation of graphene-based nanostructures for the development of electronic devices beyond the complementary metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (CMOS).

The study of 2D materials beyond graphene is key to enhance graphene’s properties by combining this material with monolayers of 2D crystals in superstructures, which will allow broadening of the range of functional applications of graphene and hybrid superstructure in post-complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) electronics.
