Low Dimensional Materials

Low dimensional materials exhibit reduced dimensions compared to their bulk counterparts. These materials include two-dimensional (2D) systems like graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), and one-dimensional (1D) systems like carbon nanotubes and nanowires.

The low dimensionality is a result of a thinness in one or more dimensions. This thinness gives the material unique properties and potential applications particularly in energy storage and next generation electronics.

Features and Applications

  • With a high surface area compared to their volume, low dimensional materials are ideal for applications requiring high surface-to-volume ratios. These include energy storage devices such as batteries and supercapacitors.
  • Exceptional mechanical and electrical properties. Graphene, for example, is renowned for its extraordinary strength and electrical conductivity.
  • Quantum effects can arise from the low dimensionality. This allows for the exploitation of quantum properties, such as quantum confinement and quantum tunnelling, which can lead to new phenomena and applications.

Low dimensional materials are paving the way for a new era in materials science. As research in this field advances, we can anticipate even more groundbreaking discoveries and applications, further cementing the importance of these extraordinary materials in our everyday lives.
