Advances in Low Dimensional and 2D Materials
2D materials are crystalline materials consisting of a single layer of atoms. Since the isolation of single layer graphene in 2004, work on graphene analogues of 2D materials have progressed rapidly across the scientific and engineering fields. Moreover, the existence in nature of layered crystallographic structures where exotic properties emerge has enlarged the field of low dimensional materials. The special topic aims to collect the recent advances in technologically relevant low-dimensional and 2D materials, such as graphene, layered semiconductors, and topological insulators. This collection addresses recent trends in 2D materials and hybrid structures and their widespread applications in device technology and measurement.
