Outreach

As a Book editor:
Dr Luigi Colombo from the University of Texas at Dallas and Dr. Rafik Addou from Oregon State University (OSU)  are working on a book with Elsevier entitled Defects in 2D Materials. We are now beginning this important project and are targeting an early 2021 publication date. feel free to contact me, if you are interested to contribute a chapter on this book.

Overview of the book contents:

The book will address the fundamental physics and chemistry of defects in 2D materials, and their effects on physical, electrical, and optical properties 2D materials such as graphene, hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD). This knowledge will benefit scientists and engineers to tune the 2D materials properties to meet specific application requirements. To the best of our knowledge, no book has addressed the physics and chemistry of 2D materials defects. The primary objective of this book is to review the instrumentation to probe the imperfections, compare the defects present in the various 2D materials (e.g. graphene, h-BN, TMDs, phosphorene, silicene, etc.). Understanding and controlling these defects can provide a pathway to not only basic understanding of the defects themselves but also potentially to novel applications requiring defect engineering.

Two-dimensional materials research and development is a fast-growing field that could lead to many industrial applications. The primary objective of this book is to review, discuss and present opportunities in controlling defects in these materials with the objective of improving device performance in general or using the defects in a controlled way for novel applications.
