Commercialising 2D Materials for Semiconductor Applications - MRE 2020

Posted on: 11/12/2019

Call for papers for 2D Materials seminar at Materials Research Exchange 2020.

The 2D materials market is expected to reach $1.6bn by 2025 at a high growth rate of 72.8%, enabled by the large investment in graphene R&D, scalable manufacturing and raised interest of end-users in graphene applications. However, this market has the potential to reach over $70 billion by 2030 through the commercialisation of non-carbon 2D materials and its applications in semiconductor devices.


Materials Research Exchange 2020 brings a forum to showcase the current state of the art in semiconductor 2D Materials and discuss how the UK can be at the forefront of its commercialisation.


Call for papers

The seminar host is inviting innovators from businesses and research organisations to submit a paper to present at this seminar. The 15 min talks will showcase research and technology developments in 2D Materials for Semiconductor applications. Use the link below to submit your talk proposal by 20th January 2020.
