Oak Ridge, TN

Workshop 2

Collective Phenomena in Layered and 2D Materials

August 9-10, 2016


Organizer(s): Petro Maksymovych and Michael A. McGuire

The workshop is dedicated to complex 2D and layered materials that exhibit electronically, structurally and magnetically ordered ground states. We will discuss fundamental properties, prospective new functional properties as well as recent advances enabled by theory, experiments and device integration.

The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

•new materials, including transition metal halides, thiophosphates and beyond;
•magnetic, structural and electronic order parameters in layered and 2D materials;
•phase transitions in anisotropic and layered materials;
•advances in synthesis, characterization and theory of complex layered materials and disorder;
•van-der-Waals heterostructures and superlattices.

The workshop will consist of invited and contributed talks, and a poster session. In addition to fundamental significance, the workshop seeks to broaden the interest of community in the rapidly developing capabilities of CNMS and SNS for the study of 2D materials. Tours and hands-on demonstrations of relevant facilities will be arranged. The participants of the workshop will be encouraged to contribute their presentations for a tutorial-style information packet.

For questions and comments about the workshop, please feel free to contact Petro Maksymovych.
