Nanophotonics of 2D Materials (N2D 2019)

Over the past decade, there has been a growing research activity on light-matter interactions in atomically thin materials, such as graphene, topological insulators, thin polar and semiconducting layers and other van der Waals materials, including their heterostructures. Nanophotonics of 2D materials (N2D) aims to explore their optical phenomena by providing a setting where researchers from diverse fields can convene; classical and quantum optics; excitons, phonons and plasmons; far-field and near field spectroscopies; many body optical physics; topological photonics; among many others. Through these interactions, N2D seeks to provide a setting where unifying concepts can form, new ideas are inspired, and new frontiers in theoretical and experimental research on 2D materials nanophotonics can emerge. 

 

Meet the editor and discuss high impact publishing

As part of N2D, there will be a conference panel to discuss High Impact Publishing in 2D featuring editors from the American Chemical Society, Nature Publishing, and the Royal Society of Chemistry. Professor Qing Dai, NCNST China, will take part in the panel discussion to share his recent experiences and top tips for authors as an Associate Editor for Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances.

 

Important Dates

Abstract submission for poster contributions is still open 
Early-Bird Registration Deadline: December 15

 

Check out the conference website for a full list of speakers: http://n2d-2019.dipc.org/ and for the conference program: http://n2d-2019.dipc.org/n2d/cgi-bin/talks/allprint.pl
