Investigation into the physics and technology of graphene in the past decade has triggered research into a large family of similar Van der Waals structures. One such class of materials that is receiving a huge amount of attention is transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) which have shown immense potential towards both electronics & optoelectronics applications. To fulfil this potential there must be a clear understanding of both the fabrication of these materials & the techniques involved in their characterisation.
This webinar will be focussed on recent advances in growth of these materials as well as Raman characterisation & elucidate the interplay between process engineering & materials characterisation.
This webinar comprises of two talks followed by a Q&A at the end:
Ravi Sundaram is the market manager for research and emerging technologies at Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology. He has been involved in materials research in several institutions such as EPFL, Switzerland, Max Planck Institute Stuttgart, Germany, IBM T.J Watson Research Labs, NY and Cambridge University where he worked on several aspects of 1D and 2D materials-based research from synthesis, fundamental science to prototype applications in sensors, optoelectronics and electronics. He joined Oxford Instruments to lead and coordinate R&D efforts towards 2D materials products. Currently, he is responsible for scoping out and developing a strategy for emerging technology markets such as 2Dmaterials, biomedical devices, integrated photonics, Quantum Technologies among others.
Dr Tim Batten is the Senior Applications Specialist at Renishaw.
