Understanding of Nano-Materials


Emerging of 2D Materials : Graphene

   • Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms in a two-dimensional hexagonal lattice.

      It is considered as a single layer of graphite.

    Because of its outstanding electrical, mechanical, thermal, and optical properties, graphene is

      expected to be applied to various future industry applications such as flexible electronics,

      nanocomposites, and energy-related devices.

    Since the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010 was awarded for the research on the physical properties of

      graphene, graphene and other 2D materials have been extensively studied in many fields.

    Our research is starting from understating the fundamental properties of graphene and other
