Flatlands Beyond Graphene (FBG) 2014 will bring together world-leading experts in the area of 2D nanomaterials. It will focus on recent advances in controlling and characterising the properties of these materials, with a particular emphasis on electronic, photonic and spintronic applications. This conference builds on one previous meeting in this series held in Bremen in 2013 and 6 conferences of its ancestral series, Nanostructures of Transition Metal Chalcogenides (TMCN) which have run from 2007 to 2012.

The conference will give students an opportunity to meet and interact with leading scientists, combining good scientific discussions with excellent networking opportunities, and for many a first chance to present their results at an international conference. Finally, it represents an opportunity to showcase our new Research Centre, AMBER, to provide an overview of the goals and ambitions and to attract potential new PIs to Ireland. The scientific focus of the conference is the area of two-dimensional nanomaterials with significant implications for future advances in ICT and Energy.

Flatlands Beyond Graphene 2014 will primarily focus on the following topics of current interest:

  • Synthesis
  • Exfoliation
  • Doping and functionalization (chemical modification)
  • Applications of single layers and stacked heterostructures
  • Meso- and Macro-scale systems – composites and thin films
  • Electronics and optoelectronics
  • Physics and applications associated with spin
  • New/novel/non-standard materials
  • Characterisation

Microscopy workshop for MoWSeS ESRs and ERs – 7 & 8 July 2014.

In the world of Nanotechnology, Material Science and Life Science, transmission electron microscopy has become an essential tool to investigate materials and correlate structures to properties. We will run a two-days workshop to explore the basic electron optics, basic principles of TEM imaging and diffraction, radiation damage and image recording and processing are introduced. We will also cover more advanced topics such as aberration-correction, Atomic-resolution HRTEM and STEM Imaging, imaging theory and simulation.
In the practical sessions, participants will get hands-on experience with particular attention on demonstrating the meaning of some of the most fundamental concepts covered during the lecture course.

This course will be available only for a limited number of participants.
