Summer School 2022 – Prospects and challenges of hybrid interfaces in TMDC and organic systems

26. – 28.09.2022 Hotel Schützenhof, Eitorf

Two-dimensional (2D) materials such as transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) are receiving large interest because of their fascinating physical properties that result from the confinement of electronic states in such layers. Moreover, stacking different 2D materials or combining them with organic semiconductor films enables the fabrication of heterostacks with atomically sharp interfaces that show great potential for future electronic or optoelectronic device applications.

The summer school is organized by the collaborated research center (SFB 1083) and will take place in rural surroundings on the edge of the Westerwald not far from Bonn (35km) and Cologne (50km). Aimed at PhD and graduate students, it offers overview and introductory lectures on various topics ranging from fundamental chemical, physical and optoelectronic properties of TMDCs and heterostructures to experimental techniques to study their properties as well as their integration into future devices.

Student participants are also encouraged to present a poster of their own work, which should also be promoted in form of a 3-minute short presentation. We are expecting around 50 participants. The size and focus of the meeting will provide a lively and intimate atmosphere with ample opportunity for discussion.
