Workshop Announcements: ICP2DC and Bad Honeff Physics School 2022

published on 2022-02-01 by 2dmp_spp2244

The International conference Physics Of 2D Crystals (ICP2DC) will take place from June 28 to July 3, 2022 in Ekaterinburg. Christian Schneider and Alexey Chernikov are part of the program committee and many members of the SPP are on the list of invited speakers, so we can expect the program to be closely related to our work in the SPP. You can find all information here.

The Bad Honnef Physics School "As thin as it gets: Physics of 2D Materials and Heterostructures" will take plae from July 24 to July 29, 2022 in Bad Honeff. It is focussed on synthesis, fabrication, and characterization as well as properties and hot topics in the field of 2D materials. Among the speakers are several PIs of the SPP. Details can be found here.

Summer School 2021

published on 2021-06-30 by @2dmp_spp2244

The first summer school of the SPP 2244 with the title "vdW assembly – more than playing Lego" will start today at 13:20 (CEST) with a welcome session by Prof. Thomas Heine and afterwards the first lecture by Prof. Rebeca Ribeiro-Palau (C2N, Université Paris-Saclay, France) on "Building quantum materials layer by layer". Furthermore, we will have the first poster session and our virtual lab tours today. Please visit the summer school webpage for more details.

SPP Colloquium Series

published on 2021-05-03 by @2dmp_spp2244

This summer term the first colloquia as part of the SPP will take place. We plan to have a series of colloquia every semester, starting with a small summer series including talks by Andres Castellanos-Gomez, CSIC Madrid, Spain (June 10, 15:00 in cooperation with CRC 1415 "Chemistry of synthetic 2D materials") and James McIver, MPI for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter Hamburg. More details on this will come soon on the 2dmp website, our Twitter channel @2dmp_spp2244 and also by e-mail.

Open positions in SPP 2244

published on 2021-03-11 by @2dmp_spp2244

Currently there is one open position for PhD students in the group of Dr. Katja Höflich to work on their Joint-Lab Photonic Quantum Technologies. The work will focus on on the fabrication and ion beam based nanostructuring of two-dimensional (2D) van-der-Waals heterostructures for the low-loss transport of highly confined polaritonic modes.

Publications February 2021

published on 2021-02-15 by @2dmp_spp2244

The papers from Dante Kennes and coworkers shown as preprints in January have now been published:

  • "Moiré heterostructures as a condensed-matter quantum simulator" in Nature Physics
  • "Moiré metrology of energy landscapes in van der Waals heterostructures" in Nature Communications

The first of these papers was also picked up by phys.org.


Postdoctoral positions related to SPP 2244

published on 2021-01-28 by @2dmp_spp2244

Prof. Angelo Di Bernardo, Prof. Elke Scheer and Prof. Wolfgang Belzig offer three postdoctoral positions in their groups at University of Konstanz. These positions are part of a FET grant that has just been awarded focusing on gate-tunable superconducting devices, which is in strong connection to their project within the SPP.
