April 18 – Full Day Symposium – Nanotech Enabled 2D Devices & Materials

IEEE SFBA Nanotechnology Council 10th Anniversary Full Day Symposium

“The Promise and Progress of Nanotech Enabled 2D Devices and Materials”

Friday April 18, 2014
8:30 AM – 4:30  pm
Texas Instruments (TI) Auditorium E-1
2900 Semiconductor Drive
Santa Clara, CA

Co-Sponsored by IEEE SCV Electron Devices Chapter

Devices derived from atomically thin sheet crystalline materials are among the latest revolutions to come out of the past decade’s focus on Nanotechnology. These so-called 2D materials hold the promise of vastly improved electrical, thermal, optical, structural and piezoelectric properties. They may be arriving just in time to shore up the slowing pace of 3D silicon based advances. They go by the now familiar names Graphene and Germanene as well as the emerging names Stanene, Silicene, and Moly disulfide. The IEEE San Francisco Bay Area Nanotechnology Council Chapter will devote its 10th Anniversary Fall Symposium to showcase the breadth of the exciting work being done in the Bay Area and beyond to reveal the promise of these uniquely nanotechnology enabled structures.

The symposium will provide a forum for networking and exchange of information among local academics, engineers, early stage venture capitalists and entrepreneurs who are moving nanotechnology beyond single dimension applications and into the world of 2D where cooperation is again shown to magnify beneficial results.

Presentations will cover:

  • Research and commercialization of one or a few atom thick materials or surface effects.
  • Materials like Graphene, Stanene, Silicene, Germanene, Moly disulfide, Boron Nitrice, etc.
  • Dramatic improvements in electrical, thermal, optical, structural and piezoelectric properties.
  • Applications such as batteries, super capacitors, sensors, integrated circuits, optical & piezoelectric devices.
