This work is focused on an interesting class of two-dimensional crystals such as graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides, boron nitrides, and black phosphorus, and their heterostructures. The researchers investigate a diverse range of their physical properties, such as electronic, optical, magnetic, ferroelectricity, multiferroics, thermoelectricity to topological properties. They employ a wide range of multiphysics and multiscale tools both retrospectively (e.g. corroborating our results to experiments) and prospectively (e.g. predicting new phenomena and finding solutions to open problems).
