UPenn established a new research center to developer layered materials

Penn State University (UPenn) and the Materials Research Institute have launched a center to research 2D materials. Specifically, the center aims to discover new 3D materials made by stacking 2D materials. They say that 2D materials could be used to make new hybrid 3D layered structures with a wide range of applications not yet imagined.

A dozen Penn State faculty members are involved in the center, including theorists, materials chemists, experimental physicists and experts in 2D synthesis.
