2D Materials contains the latest information on the current frontier of nanotechnology, the thinnest form of materials to ever occur in nature. A little over 10 years ago, this was a completely unknown area, not thought to exist. However, since then, graphene has been isolated and acclaimed, and a whole other class of atomically thin materials, dominated by surface effects and showing completely unexpected and extraordinary properties has been created.

This book is ideal for a variety of readers, including those seeking a high-level overview or a very detailed and critical analysis. No nanotechnologist can currently overlook this new class of materials.

Francesca Iacopi received her MSc in Physics from Roma I University, Italy (1996), and her PhD in E.E./Materials Science from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium (2004), under the supervision of Prof.Karen Maex. She has over 15 years academic and industrial experience in Materials, Processes and Characterization of Semiconductor Technologies across devices, interconnects, packaging and heterogeneous integration on silicon. In 1999 she joined IMEC (Belgium), as Staff Scientist in Interconnects and Nanotechnology. Her pioneering work on porous low-dielectric-constant materials has strongly influenced the evolution of the International Roadmap for Semiconductors for Interconnects over the 1999-2009 decade. In 2009 she was appointed Guest Professor at the University of Tokyo (Japan), hosted by Prof.Kazuo Terashima, leading research on cryogenic plasmas for the treatment of semiconductor materials. Over 2010-2011, she directed the Chip-Package Interaction strategy for GLOBALFOUNDRIES (Ca, USA), establishing roadmaps and liaising across the Germany, New York and Singapore sites of the semiconductor foundry . Successively she joined Griffith University (Australia), where her research interest is silicon carbide and graphene on silicon for Electronics, Opto-electronics, Energy and Sensing technologies. She is co-author of over 100 peer-reviewed publications and 7 granted patents. She was a 2003 recipient of a Gold Graduate Student Award from the Materials Research Society, and a 2012 recipient of a Future Fellowship from the Australian Research Council. She was awarded a Global Innovation Award at the TechConnect Summit in Washington DC, 2014, for Processes enabling low cost graphene/silicon carbide MEMS . Boeckl is a research scientist in the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. He is a lead researcher of low-dimensional carbon material growth on SiC. In addition to managing this growth effort Dr. Boeckl is also well versed in various characterization tools that are used to evaluate the resulting material both electronically and structurally. Dr. Boeckl has BS (1989) degree from Cleveland State University and his M.S. (1998) and Ph.D (2005) degrees in Electrical Engineering from The Ohio State University. Chennupati Jagadish is a Distinguished Professor in Electronic Materials Engineering in the Research School of Physics and Engineering at the Australian National University. He has more than 35 years of research experience in semiconductor physics, materials science and optoelectronic devices. He has published more than 550 journal papers and edited many books and has given more than 120 plenary, keynote and invited talks at prime conferences in the field. He is world renowned in the fields of semiconductor optoelectronics and nanotechnology. He has received 2015 IEEE Nanotechnology Pioneer Award, 2015 IEEE Photonics Society Engineering Achievement Award, 2013 Walter Boas Medal and 2010 Quantum Device Award and Fellow Australian Academy of Science, Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, The World Academy of Sciences and 14 other professional societies.In 2016 Jagadish was awarded the highest civilian honour given by Australian Government, Companion of Order of Australia (AC) as part of Australia Day Honours announced by the Governor General's office.
