The Centre of New Technologies invites to a seminar by
Prof. Prof. Jacek A. Majewski
“New opportunities in the flat world”
Date: October 5th , 2018 at 12 p.m.
Venue: Centre of New Technologies, Banacha 2C,
Lecture Hall 0142 (Ground floor)
Host: dr hab. Joanna Sułkowska
I would like to survay a general role played by layered atomically thin nanostructures in materials science.
Providing some illustrating examples from own research, I would like to point out how 2D materials can enhance the features
of bulk systems (e.g. thermoelectricity) or can generate possibility of completely novel functionalities (e.g. valletronics).
I will mention also the role of 2D systems in such vivid challenges as (i) carbon caption, (ii) energy harvesting (photovoltaics),
and (iii) catalysis with non metals.
