Abstract

2D materials are interesting in part because they can be arranged at will within the three-dimensional world in which we live.  I will discuss the possibility of realizing new electrical and electro-optical properties based on the properties of multi-layers formed from two-dimensional semiconductors and two-dimensional insulators.  I will focus mainly on the case of spatially indirect exciton condensates, but comment briefly on coupling between two-dimensional excitons and two-dimensional photons defined by vertical cavities.
