3rd European Workshop
on Epitaxial Graphene and 2D Materials

Bergisch Gladbach (near Cologne)
17. – 21. May 2016


The scope of EWEG2D’2016 is the physics and chemistry of 2-dimensional materials (2DMs) with a strong focus on 2DMs grown epitaxially on well-defined substrates. Materials of interest are graphene and its derivatives (e.g. graphane), its elemental analogues (silicene, germanene, stanene), hexagonal boron nitride, and transition metal dichalcogenides, but also less common Albrecht v. Boninsystems as phosphorene or group III monochalcogenides (e.g., GaSe). Also advanced materials in the form of nanostructures and lateral in-plane or vertical van-der-Waals stacked heterostructures fall into the field of the workshop.

EWEG2D’2016 addresses the experimental determination of structural, electronic, magnetic and optical properties of supported and freestanding 2DMs, as well as theoretical modeling of such properties and prediction of new 2DMs.  The workshop includes studies on the interaction of 2DMs with their environment, for example the adsorption of atoms or molecules, or the interaction with light, electric or magnetic fields.  Special attention is given to the interaction of 2DMs with their substrate and the way it changes their properties.
