Sheets of carbon atoms called graphene have transformed materials science and engineering, and they have also suggested a world beyond graphene, including other 2D materials and layered 2D systems with novel, alluring properties. As a consequence, there is now a need for a the scalable growth of these 2D materials, b the stacking of 2D materials in desired configurations, c the characterization of the obtained systems, d device fabrication, e device characterization, and e the measurement of their physical properties. The focus areas of this project are material preparation and device fabrication, the measurement and study of the electrical- and optical- properties, and associated applications of layered 2D systems including bilayer and monolayer graphene, GaAsAlGaAs 2DES, atomically thin hexagonal boron nitride, and mono- and bilayer-molybdenum disulfide. Such a study of the building blocks, and especially of coupled stacks of such 2D materials obtained via van der Waals hetero-epitaxy, can potentially impact the DoD mission by advancing materials and technology for new low-power and low-dissipation devices for portable flexible electronics electronics that can provide more functionality in a smaller device with lower energy consumption.
