Colloquium

Title:  Electronic properties of novel two-dimensional materials

Speaker: Yuanbo Zhang, Professor, Fudan University

Location: Room 111, Physics Building

Time: 15:00-16:00, Wed, May 20 , 2015

Abstract:

Two-dimensional atomic crystals, best exemplified by graphene, have emerged as a new class of material that may impact future science and technology. Our group at Fudan University has been actively exploring new 2D materials with peculiar electronic properties. In this talk I will discuss two 2D materials that we found interesting – black phosphorus and 1T-TaS2. These two layered materials have vastly different properties. We explore their electronic properties while the doping and dimensionality of the 2D systems are modulated.

Biography:
Prof. Yuanbo Zhang received his BS from Peking Universityin 2000 and his PhD in Physics from Columbia Universityin 2006. He was a Miller Research Fellow at the University of California at Berkeley from September 2006 to June 2009, a postdoc research associate at IBMAlmaden Research Center from March 2010 to September 2010, and a professor of Fudan University from 2011. His main research interests are: Electronic transport in low-dimensional systems; Scanning probe techniques and their application in studying low-dimensional nanostructures.
