Large-scale preparation of 2D MXenes
A new two-dimensional (2D) transition metal material, MXene, has many potential applications, including for photonic and plasmonic devices. For instance, MXenes have shown optical properties such as broadband absorption and surface plasmon excitations. However, large-scale synthesis and processing of MXenes lags behind other 2D materials. The EU-funded MXTRONICS project will investigate the use of MXenes for optoelectronic memory applications. Specifically, it will develop processes to synthesise new MXenes and doping strategies to functionalise them. The synthesised MXenes will be characterised using advanced microscopy and spectroscopy techniques. The project’s goal is to transform functionalities in terms of large-scale preparation of 2D MXenes. It will make a substantial contribution to one of the EU’s main priorities on developing nanotechnologies and advanced materials.
