Webinar by Chalmers - Scalable fabrication of edge contacts to 2D materials

The Chalmers team from the Excellence Initiative Nano at Chalmers University will organise a webinar about “Scalable fabrication of edge contacts to 2D materials”, on 02 May 2022 at 15:00 CEST.

Naveen Shetty, PhD student at the Quantum Device Physics laboratory at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience (MC2), will give a talk which will be divided into two parts: (i) pure overview of the field, accessible for all audience (15 min); (ii) his latest technical results, for a more specialised audience (15-20 min).

Abstract: The performance and reliability of electronic devices based on 2D materials crucially depends on the quality of electrical contacts. However, the problem of electrical interfacing 2D materials remains relatively overlooked, and the fabrication of reliable and reproducible ohmic contacts to a variety of 2D materials remains somewhat an open challenge. In this talk I’ll present a fabrication method for reliably producing wafer-scale electrical contacts to 2D materials, including graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs). While demonstrated for 2D materials, our method of forming electrical contacts to 2D materials could be in principle useful for other low dimensional systems, bulk crystals, and organic semiconductors. I will discuss a few possibilities during my talk.
