shm wilsonBegbroke Science Forum: Van der Waals epitaxy in growth of and on two dimensional materials

27 February 2015 13.00 – 14.00 Oxford Room, Begbroke Science Park

Convenors: Dr Seyyed Shayan Meysami & Prof Nicole Grobert

Prof Neil Wilson (Physics department, University of Warwick), will deliver a talk on Van der Waals epitaxy in growth of and on two dimensional materials as part of the Begbroke Science Forum.

Dr Neil Wilson is an Associate Professor and member of the Microscopy Group in the Department of Physics, University of Warwick. Neil’s research interests are in the synthesis of nanomaterials and the development and application of microscopy techniques to characterise them. He has a PhD in Physics from Warwick, an MS in Physics from the University of Pennsylvania and an MSc/MA in Natural Sciences from Pembroke College Cambridge.

In this talk, he will present some recent results on the growth of graphene and hexagonal boron nitride on copper and explain how van der Waals epitaxy results in long range order in both, despite the large differences in lattice parameter and the differences in symmetry between substrate and growth layer.

This talk will begin at 13.00  in the Oxford Room, Begbroke Science Park. There is a minibus leaving Parks Road at 12.31 which will arrive at Begbroke at 12.50 and is ideal for this talk.  View the timetable here.

Refreshments will be provided, you are welcome to bring your own lunch. We look forward to welcoming you to this talk.

The next Begbroke Science Forum will take place on 13 March 2015. More information coming soon!
