In recent years the world of two-dimensional (2D) materials has expanded beyond graphene to encompass not only transition metal dichalcogenide semiconductors such as MoS2 and WSe2, but also 2D superconductors, magnets, ferroelectrics, and mechanically assembled stacks of 2D materials known as van der Waals heterostructures. The goal of this symposium is to bring together experts in bulk synthesis, nanoelectronics, and theory to explore the scientific opportunities in this rapidly emerging area.
