Please mark your calendars and join the Center for Infrastructure Engineering Studies as we host Dr. Chenglin “Bob” Wu on Monday, Nov. 16, 2020, at 2:00 pm via Zoom. Dr. Wu will present, “Two-Dimensional Materials and Composites”.
Two-dimensional (2D) materials are the thin films with one or a-few-atom layer thickness. Due to their 2D nature, the electron mainly transports in the 2D space allows them to have superior electrical properties. In addition, being ultra thin, their mechanical strength over thickness ratio is much higher than steel (10 times) even when subjected to defects and out-of-plane loading. In this talk, we will illustrate the fundamental mechanical and electrical properties of 2D materials including graphene and 2D transition metal carbides (MXenes). In addition, we will also illustrate how 2D materials can help in manufacturing super-strong structured armors, ultra sensitive fiber-optic sensors, and compact bio-chemical sensors. In addition, we will show the relative low cost-to-effectiveness ratio of using 2D materials and discuss future opportunities.
