Mission and Vision

To conduct leading international and multidisciplinary research on 2D layered materials aiming at finding new phenomena and applications, that could be transformed into high impact products. The center offers a unique, vertically integrated research education to graduate and undergraduate students, with extremely valuable components including state-of-the-art infrastructure, and research environment.

Notable Quote

"What could we do with layered structures with just the right layers? What would the properties of materials be if we could really arrange the atoms the way we want them… when we have some control of the arrangement of things on a small scale, we will get an enormously greater range of possible properties that substances can have..."
