This week, the speaker for the IMG Seminar is Dr. Ant Ural on Low dimensional nanoscale materials and devices:
Low dimensional nanomaterials, such as nanotubes and graphene, are promising candidates for next-generation electronics, photonics, energy, biomedical, and IoT applications. The role of low dimensional nanomaterials in next-generation devices is not necessarily to replace silicon, but to enhance existing technologies and integrate new functionality into silicon technology. In this talk, we will first discuss our experimental and Monte Carlo simulation results on percolation networks of one-dimensional nanoelements. Then, we will talk about the fabrication and characterization of heterojunctions between low dimensional nanomaterials and silicon. Finally, we will discuss some examples of chemical vapor deposition growth of nanomaterials and nanoscale sensors based on functionalized low dimensional materials. These results provide important insights into the unique properties of low dimensional nanomaterials and their integration into silicon technology.
