What is ATOMIC?

The Center for Atomically Thin Multifunctional Coatings (ATOMIC) is devoted to the design and development of advanced coatings based on two-dimensional (2D) layered materials, and synergistically integrates world-leading faculty, researchers, students, and staff from The Pennsylvania State University and Rice University with industry and national labs.

What Are Atomically Thin Materials?

Atomically thin layers, commonly known as 2-dimensional materials, exhibit highly tunable mechanical, electronic, and optical properties, which can be engineered to solve fundamental scientific and technological challenges - and can be combined to serve multiple functions. Some examples are: graphene, h-BN, and transition metal dichalcogenides.
