Controlling many-body states by the electric-field effect in a two-dimensional material

CA2DM scientists have discovered how to manipulate many body states in thin semiconductors by encapsulating them in atomically thin materials and changing the electric field

Members of CA2DM at NUS have demonstrated a new way of controlling many body states in correlated electron systems by confining them in a device made out of atomically thin materials, and applying external electric and magnetic fields.

This research, published on 23 December 2015 in the prestigious scientific journal Nature, was led by Professor Antonio Castro Neto and his research team at CA2DM.

Welcome to the NUS Centre for Advanced 2D Materials and Graphene Research Centre

Established in 2010 within the National University of Singapore, the Graphene Research Centre (GRC) was created for the conception, characterization, theoretical modeling, and development of transformative technologies based on two-dimensional crystals, such as graphene.

In 2014, the National Research Foundation (NRF) of Singapore has awarded NUS with a S$ 50 M grant over the next 10 years in order to support the operational costs of GRC's labs and micro and nano-fabrication facility and the exploration, synthesis, and development of new devices based on two-dimensional (2D) materials of which graphene is the most famous, creating a new Centre for Advanced 2D Materials, directed by Prof. Antonio H. Castro Neto.

The new Centre for Advanced 2D Materials is now comprised of four research groups, as follows

Group Headed by
   Graphene Research      Professor Barbaros Oezyilmaz 
2D Materials Research Professor Loh Kian Ping
2D Device Research Professor Lim Chwee Teck
Theory Professor Feng Yuan Ping

Aiming at being a world leader in innovative and emergent materials science, with strong ties to the industry and academia, the CA2DM and GRC will directly contribute to a new generation of scientists and engineers who will have a permanent impact in the society and business enterprise landscape of Singapore, and worldwide (more).
