Advanced mini-workshop on
Recent progress on Graphene
6 March 2014
A one day advanced mini-workshop on recent progress in graphene is planned by ICNS5. This workshop is intended to provide advanced research information about the on-going activities in the hottest subjects in contemporary physics and materials science.
Graphene is a newly realized two-dimensional (2D) electron system which has engendered a great deal of interest because of the new physics which it exhibits and because of its potential as a new material for electronic technology. In graphene, the physics of relativistic electrons is now experimentally accessible in solid-state devices, whose behavior differs drastically from that of similar devices fabricated with common semiconductors. Having considered both transparent and highly conducting, graphene has a very high potential for use in optical devices. Chemical, mechanical and other properties of graphene also open new ways for numerous important applications.
The workshop will provide an opportunity for open discussions with world experts on various aspects on graphene research. One of our speakers in the activity will be Prof. Sir Andre Geim from the University of Manchester (Nobel Laureate in Physics 2010).
