Recent progress in graphene & 2D materials research
Posted by Xu Jing
The 10th annual Recent Progress in Graphene and Two-dimensional Materials Research Conference (RPGR2018) follows on the success of the first nine RPGR conferences held in Seoul (2009), Singapore (2010), Suwon (2011), Beijing (2012), Tokyo (2013), Taipei (2014), Australia (2015), Korea (2016) and Singapore (2017). RPGR is the premier conference focused on graphene and other novel two-dimensional materials in the Asia-Pacific region.
The RPGR conference series began with a focus on the properties and applications of graphene, the first two-dimensional material to be isolated experimentally. In recent years the family of atomically thin two-dimensional materials has expanded to include boron nitride, layered transition-metal dichalcogenides, layered oxides, silicene, black phosphorus, and many more. Recognizing the strong intellectual ties between graphene and other atomically thin materials, the focus of RPGR has expanded to include “graphene and other two-dimensional materials”.
