It is nearly twenty years since one atomic layer of carbon, which we call graphene, was separated from graphite and shown that it could lead to a new generation of electronic field-effect transistors. Prof. Arindam Ghosh will talk about how the unique fundamental physics of graphene and its analogues led to the paradigm shift in several technologies, from electronics to neuromorphic designs. He will emphasize the opportunity in designing new properties, probing fundamental concepts, and large-scale manufacturing, with this amazing class of two-dimensional solids.
