With monolayer amorphous carbon (MAC), we have shown for the first time that fully amorphous materials can be stable and free-standing in single atomic layers. Amorphous materials are of great technological importance, but surprisingly, they remain poorly understood from a basic science point of view. This breakthrough allows for direct imaging to reveal how atoms are arranged in amorphous materials, and could be of commercial value for batteries, semiconductors, membranes and many more applications.
Our monolayer amorphous films not only achieve the ultimate thickness limit, but also do not compromise on uniformity and reliability, and are generally considered viable for industry,– by Prof Barbaros Özyilmaz
There are a number of roles available in the Barbaros group, such as research assistant, research fellow, scientific officer and etc for undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral position.
