Description

Research Seminar hosted by the Monash Centre for Atomically Thin Materials

Abstract: Recently discovered atomically thin 2D materials have shown outstanding properties that differ from their bulk counterparts and are expected to lead to numerous applications in electronics, energy, chemistry, and mechanics. While much research efforts have been dedicated to study their electronic and optical properties, their mechanical properties are under-explored. Using atomic force and friction force microscopy techniques, the mechanical and tribological properties of graphene, h-BN, and MoS2 were studied.

About the Speaker: A/Prof. Changgu Lee joined the department of Mechanical Engineering and SKKU Advanced Institute of Nanotechnology, Suwon, Korea in 2010 after his postdoctoral appointment at Columbia University, New York, USA working with Prof. James Hone. Lee completed his PhD at Columbia University working on Power-MEMS for small energy generation. His current research interest is surrounding the synthesis and nanomechanics of atomically thin materials such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides.
