Title: Electronic properties of novel two-dimensional materials
Speaker: Yuanbo Zhang, Professor, Fudan University

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.
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. Major honors include: Charles Townes Fellowship, Columbia University (2005); Miller Fellow, University of California, Berkeley (2006); IUPAP Young Scientist Prize, International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (2010); Qiu Shi Outstanding Young Scholar Award, Qiu Shi Foundation (2013); Nishina Asia Award, Nishina Memorial Foundation, Japan (2014).
