4th European Workshop
on Epitaxial Graphene and 2D Materials (EWEG2D’2018)

Salamanca (Spain)
21. – 24. May 2018

Welcome to the 4th edition of the European Workshop on Epitaxial Graphene and 2D Materials (EWEG2D’2018). EWEG2D’2018 is an international workshop that gathers together the scientific community which have a common interest: the study of the structural, electronic, magnetic and optical properties of Graphene and 2D Materials epitaxially grown on well-defined substrates. Materials of interest are graphene and its derivatives, its elemental analogues (silicene, germanene, antimonene), hexagonal boron nitride, and transition metal dichalcogenides, but also less common systems as phosphorene or group III monochalcogenides (e.g., GaSe). Also advanced materials in the form of nanostructures and lateral in-plane or vertical van-der-Waals stacked heterostructures fall into the field of the workshop.

EWEG2D’2018 addresses the experimental determination of structural, electronic, magnetic and optical properties of supported and freestanding 2DMs, as well as theoretical modeling of such properties and prediction of new 2DMs. The workshop includes studies on the interaction of 2DMs with their environment, for example the adsorption of atoms or molecules, or the interaction with light, electric or magnetic fields.  Special attention is given to the interaction of 2DMs with their substrate and the way it changes their properties.
