Mid-Term Report Summary - ARTIMATTER (Lego-Style Materials, Structures and Devices Assembled on Demand from Isolated Atomic Planes)

We have developed a variety of advanced techniques to make artificial layered materials and devices, which are now called van der Waals (vdW) heterostructures. New methods allowing the assembly of dozens of individual atomic planes, one by one, are now available in the PI's lab. Even materials that are unstable under ambient conditions are now possible to include into new artificial materials. Based on these technologies, many interesting and unexpected phenomena were found and reported in the prime scientific outlets including several papers in Nature and Science plus many more publications in Nature family journals. More than 10 of the PI's publications over the reported period are marked as 'highly cited' and 'hot' by the ISI of Thomson Reuters. The research continues help industrial developments in the area of graphene and other two-dimensional materials.
