Predictive Modeling in 2D Materials: Morphology, Defects, Synthesis
Prof. Boris Yakobson
Rice University, USA

It is of great interest and importance for materials design to uncover, through computational and theoretical modeling, the following relationships: {basic atomic interactions → structure/morphology → functionality (including electronic)}. We will discuss recent examples from low-dimensional materials, where we seem to achieve satisfactory degree of understanding, mostly focusing on nucleation and islands shapes[1], grain boundaries with edge-dislocations[2], electronics of heterojunctions[3] and of screw-dislocation nano-solenoids[4], and even predictive synthesis[5].
