Hetero 2D

This project concerns the development of a new class of materials with predetermined properties specifically tailored for multifunctional applications. Individual one-atom thick materials (like graphene) will be assembled into complex "heterostructures". By utilising 2D crystals with different properties, the team hopes to create heterostructures with a range of functions and unlimited opportunities, with functionality embedded at the stage of fabrication. At only a few atoms thick, these structures could become the building blocks for future flexible and transparent electronics.
