Optics, Electronics and Magnetism in 2D Materials Workshop (OEM-2D)

21.May - 24. May, 2024 Cod. Z03-24


Optics, Electronics and Magnetism in 2D Materials worshop (OEM-2D) is a dynamic and cutting-edge event at the intersection between materials science and condensed matter physics,  with experts in the field of two-dimensional nanostructures including flakes, layers and nanostructures, and studying phenomena related to electronics, magnetism and  optics. This workshop focuses on the structure-property interplay in its shaping of the electronics and magnetic materials of today. Other nanostructures related to surfaces are also welcome. OEM-2D aims to foster collaboration, bringing together leading researchers and scientists from diverse disciplines,  such as devices, modelling,... to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas, paving the way for the studying innovative materials to be used in the engineering of future technologies such as valleytronics, spintronics and  quantum computing.

At OEM-2D, our primary aim is to establish and enhance collaborations between experts in the field, enabling cross-exchange of ideas and research across various subdisciplines. By promoting a synergy of expertise, we aim to accelerate progress and breakthroughs in the realms of optics, electronics, and magnetism, with a particular emphasis on graphene and other interesting nanostructures.

Another vital aim of this workshop is to serve as a platform for sharing insights and initiating collaborative projects. We envision OEM-2D as a hub for the exchange of knowledge, enabling participants to leverage their collective expertise and embark on groundbreaking research endeavors. Our goal is to create an environment where new ideas flourish and synergies are harnessed to their fullest potential.

Furthermore, we are committed to help the next generation of researchers. OEM-2D places a strong emphasis on connecting Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers with the latest developments at the forefront of these fields. By bridging the gap between established researchers and emerging talent, we aim to cultivate the future leaders in materials science and provide them with the resources and networks necessary for their growth and success. Through a combination of in-depth sessions and networking opportunities, OEM-2D offers an invaluable educational experience for young scholars and aspiring researchers.


Best poster prizes

Two prizes of €100 each will be awarded to posters presented at the poster session of the congress. The prize will be paid by bank transfer a few days after the end of the congress.

Thomas Frederiksen

Donostia International Physics Center and Ikerbasque

Thomas Frederiksen (TF) obtained his PhD in physics in 2007 from the Technical University of Denmark on the topic of inelastic transport theory for nanoscale systems. In 2008 he was awarded a 5­-year Gipuzkoa Fellowship to carry out research at the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) and abroad. In 2012 he was appointed Ikerbasque Research Professor at the DIPC where he leads a research group on Nanoelectronics. TF is one of the main developers of the DFT-NEGF code "Inelastica" to perform atomistic simulations of inelastic electron transport and local heating in nanoscale devices.

Fabian Jaroslav

Univeristy of Regensburg

Jaroslav Fabian (PhD 1997, SUNY Stony Brook) is a professor of theoretical physics at the University of Regensburg where he heads the Spintronics Group since 2004. Prior to that Jaroslav Fabian was on the faculty at the Karl-Franzens University in Graz, and a research associate in University of Maryland at College Park, and Max-Planck Institute for Complex Systems in Dresden. Research activities of Jaroslav Fabian span a wide spectrum of theoretical and computational solid state physics, but are particularly focused on the physics of 2D materials and on the field of spintronics. He is a member of Graphene Flagship, and several collaborative research initiatives. Recently, he has been excited about the art of creating novel electronic and magnetic properties by proximity effects in stacks of 2D materials.
