Physics of 2D Materials
New York State Section
of the American Physical Society
and the 115th Topical Symposium
November 11-12, 2016
The Department of Physics, Applied Physics, and Astronomy at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute presents a Meeting of the New York State Section of the American Physical Society, the 115th topical symposium. The theme of the symposium is “Physics of 2D Materials".
The symposium features talks on experimental and theoretical work on the development of two-dimensional and layered materials, spanning a variety of research topics ranging from synthesis, characterization, device fabrication and theory, with emphasis on recent discoveries. Speakers come from a variety of distinguished institutions in the northeast region.
Prof. Mildred Dresselhaus from Massachusetts Institute of Technology will deliver a keynote address. Other meeting activities include a poster session with contributions from undergraduate and graduate students. We especially encourage undergraduates to attend and submit posters of their work.
This event is sponsored in part by Rensselaer’s Department of Physics, Applied Physics, and Astronomy and by the Rensselaer Center for Materials, Devices, and Integrated Systems (cMDIS).
