Millennium Cafe

The Millennium Café

Every Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.: The Millennium Café is a weekly dialogue catalyzed by coffee, snacks and two diverse research presentations (<10 min) involving students, faculty, and staff. This is an opportunity to spend time "outside the box" developing new ideas and leveraging the collective expertise of the group to innovate.

Graphene and Beyond

Graphene & Beyond

There is now a daily stream of "beyond graphene" research publications – many of which are in journals of highest impact factors – addressing a broad range of experimental and theoretical materials-related topics including synthesis, characterization, integration, and devices. To enhance synergy within the community and build toward a strong future in 2D crystal science and technology, the Center for 2D and Layered Materials at Penn State University will be hosting a workshop on May 11-12, 2015 entitled "Graphene and Beyond: From Atoms to Applications."

Quantum Espresso

Quantum Espresso

This workshop is a modular and open-source suite widely used in the investigation of the properties of man-made and natural materials, taking explicitly into account the electronic structure.

Developers of the package, led by the Professors Stefano Baroni and Paolo Giannozzi will present the theory behind the codes and train the participants on how to use them for different applications. Participants would be able to present a poster of their own work during the workshop.
