Geometrical structure of 2D materials

Date: 16 November 2016

Venue: UAntwerp - Campus Groenenborger - Room U.241 - Groeneborgerlaan 171 - 2020 Antwerpen (route: UAntwerpen, Campus Groenenborger)

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Short description: Condensed Matter Theory seminar presented by Dr Ortwin Leenaerts

In the literature on two-dimensional materials, there sometimes appear bizarre suggestions for novel 2D material structures. These appear to result from a lack of understanding  of the underlying chemical bonding picture and other, more physical, notions.  In this seminar, Dr Ortwin Leenaerts will discuss some chemical and physical properties that are important for understanding the geometrical structure of some common 2D crystals.
