Novel 2D Materials


Novel 2D materials, e.g., graphene, graphene oxide, h-BN, transition metal dichalcogenides are in focus due to their ultimate thickness and extraordinary properties. We study in detail their interaction with adatoms, clusters, nucleobases, organometallics etc. in order to understand their applications in gas sensing, drug delivery, organic spintronics etc.  Also, atomic scale defects in these 2D materials and their influence on structural, electronic and magnetic properties are studied to investigate the possibilities of nano-scale defect engineering.
