Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung


Aim of the course is to provide the students a comprehensive overview of the research field of two-dimensional materials focusing on the related physical phenomena and experimental approaches to address them. The course is aimed towards the end of master studies or for doctoral studies. Recommended knowledge before the course includes basics of solid state physics, materials physics as well as laboratory courses such as "Advanced Materials" or "Low-Dimensional Solids".


Similar to other low-dimensional materials, two-dimensional materials provide exciting possibilities for materials science through their unique properties. At the same time, however, they pose a challenge for the researchers due to the difficulties involved in addressing their intrinsic properties. During this course, we will go through recent literature that covers basic properties of the members of this new materials class as well as experiments demonstrating ways to study them.


This course will follow a flipped learning approach; material (mostly scientific articles, but possibly also videos and other content) will be provided on a weekly basis for the students with questions and/or points for discussion. The students will send in their answers and/or questions on the material one week before the lecture where they will be then discussed.
