2D Semiconductor Materials
2D materials can broadly be grouped by their properties and potential applications. They are materials which consist of atomically thin layers that are weakly bonded to one another by van de Waals forces.
Our collection offers high quality, low cost 2D materials in crystal, powder, or film form.

More on 2D Materials
Interest in 2D materials has increased dramatically since the successful mechanical exfoliation of graphene in 2004 by Novoselov and Geim.
2D materials can be created from a bulk material via several different methods, the simplest of which is mechanical exfoliation. Also known as the Scotch-tape method, the weak weakly van der Waals forces that bond the single-atom-thick layers in the material together can be overcome with a piece of sticky tape. More sophisticated methods like chemical vapour deposition can be used for larger and more uniform 2D flakes.
