Stacking Atomic Layers: Quest for New Materials and Physics

60 Evans Hall
  • Prof. Philip Kim, Harvard University, Physics and Applied Physics
Modern electronics has relied heavily on the technology to confine electrons in the interface layers of semiconductors. In recent years, scientists discovered that various atomically thin materials including graphene, a single atomic carbon layer, can be isolated. In these atomically thin materials, quantum physics allows electrons to move only in an effective 2-dimensional (2D) space. By...

Double Quantum Dot Nanocrystal Synthesis and Applications

60 Evans Hall
  • Prof. Dan Oron, Weizmann Institute, Applied Physics
Colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals have evolved in the past decades from a topic of pure scientific interest to a technological one. This has been driven by dramatic advances in the ability to fabricate controlled complex structures via wet chemistry methods. Today, exquisite control can be exerted on the detailed structure and energy landscape within colloidal nanoparticles, leading to new...
