The 2020 Gordon Conference on Two Dimensional (2D) Electronics will present cutting-edge research addressing the fundamental properties and potential uses of atomically thin materials and their heterostructures. Rapid progress has been made in exploring emerging phenomena in new 2D materials and heterostructures. Examples include twisted 2D materials with tunable correlated states (Mott insulator, superconductor, orbital ferromagnetism, Chern insulator etc); van der Waals magnets for tunable magnetism, magneto-optical effects, topological physics, Chern physics, and spin liquids; van der Waals superconductor for hosting topological excitation; 2D semimetal for tunable exotic phases (quantum spin Hall, low carrier density superconductivity, ferroelectricity); high temperature exciton condensation, polariton, and superfluid in 2D heterostructures etc.. Applications towards quantum technologies, spintronics, optical communication, negative capacitance transistors, and memory/neuromorphic computing etc. have also been rapidly developing. This conference will bring the active researchers in the fields of Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Device Engineering, to share the latest exciting results to continue push the frontier of this dynamic and highly interdisciplinary research field.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program will be available by October 15, 2019. Please check back for updates.
