Hybrid Solids and 2D Materials
⠀⠀⠀⠀Hybrid materials contain both inorganic and organic components with the promise of producing more than just a combination of properties, but also leading to new behavior through synergy between the contributing partners. Hybrid materials are distinguished from other composite materials by the length scale, with at least one of the elements, although typically both, characterized by molecular scale or nanoscale features. At these length scales electronic, magnetic and optical materials properties depend critically on interfaces, both between components within a hybrid as well as at the hybrid material surface. Our lab aims to understand and control interfaces and surfaces in hybrid materials by combining synthesis with detailed structural and materials properties characterization.
