The 2DCC-MIP is focused on advancing the synthesis of 2D materials within the context of a national user facility. The 2DCC is developing custom deposition tools with in-situ and real time characterisation and facilities for bulk growth of chalcogenide single crystals. Unique capabilities are also available to simulate growth kinetics through first principles and a reactive potential approach.
2D transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) films that are only a few atoms thick
Topological insulator (TI) bismuth chalcogenide films that only conduct on the 2D surface
Multilayers of dissimilar chalcogenide films with properties dominated by 2D interfaces
Radial distribution chamber with load-lock chamber
EVO-50 MBE module for TMDCs
ARPES module for high resolution bandstructure measurements
LT Nanoprobe with UHV SEM for atomically precise transport measurements
