Experimental and theoretical determination of van der Waals forces between and within two-dimensional materials

Project description

The ties that bind: a study of van der Waals forces in 2D materials

Van der Waals forces are the sum of relatively weak attractive and repulsive forces between electrically neutral atoms and molecules. Although the forces are relatively weak, they are important in numerous processes including adhesion, the stability of colloids, protein structure – and the interactions within and between 2D materials. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the vdWForcesIn2D project is conducting a comprehensive experimental and theoretical investigation of van der Waals forces in stacks of 2D materials and free-standing ones building on novel approaches for measurement of binding energies.
