Using Topology to Engineer the Electronic Structure of Bottom-Up Synthesized Graphene Nanoribbons: Nano Seminar Series

Lecture | November 30 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

 Prof. Michael F. Crommie, UC Berkeley, Physics Department

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

The idea of classifying materials by their topological properties is useful for predicting their behavior, especially at interfaces between insulators. When a topologically nontrivial insulator (often referred to as a topological insulator) is fused to a topologically trivial insulator then metallic states arise at the interface between them. This concept has been fruitful for 3D and 2D materials...   More >
