MSE 511 - Selected Topics in Properties of Two-Dimensional Materials
This special topics survey course focuses on two-dimensional materials, such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides. Through a combination of lectures and journal club-type discussions of published research papers and review articles, the synthesis, physical, mechanical, and structural properties of these materials are explored. Discussion topics include electronic structure and transport properties, deformation behavior and fracture, defects (e.g., grain boundaries and dislocations), structural transformations, and synthesis of 2D materials. Reading list: Research papers and review articles on two-dimensional materials.
