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.
