Speech Title: Recent Advances of Energy-Efficient Two-Dimensional Nanoelectronics
Abstract: With the rise of graphene in 2004, two-dimensional (2D) materials have received great attention in multiple disciplines and been considered one of the most promising materials for future energy-efficient nanoelectronics. In this talk, I will briefly review the novel and fascinating properties of 2D materials, ranging from semimetal graphene to semiconducting MoS2 and insulating h-BN, and their state-of-the-art applications especially in energy-efficient beyond-CMOS nanoelectronics.
