Frontiers in Nanotechnology Seminar Series Presents Yury Gogotsi, Drexel University

“2D Carbides and Nitrides (MXenes) at the Frontier of Materials Research” 

This talk will provide an in-depth look at the synthesis, structure, and groundbreaking optoelectronic properties of MXenes. Learn how these materials challenge conventional boundaries with their tunable electronic states and how their properties can be meticulously designed and modulated for specific applications. We will explore how MXenes have surpassed other materials in applications such as electromagnetic interference shielding and how their electrochemical and optical properties are interconnected, offering new avenues for real-time, in-situ monitoring through advanced spectroelectrochemistry techniques.

Prepare to be captivated by the future of 2D materials and their potential to redefine the landscape of material science. Whether you’re a seasoned researcher, a student of science, or simply intrigued by the latest advancements in technology, this talk will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of MXenes and their place in our future. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore the atomistic design and multifaceted applications of these extraordinary materials.

Get to Know Yury Gogotsi

Yury Gogotsi is a Distinguished University Professor and Charles T. and Ruth M. Bach Endowed Chair in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University (Philadelphia, USA). He is the founding Director of the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute.

Together with his students and colleagues, he made principal contributions to the development of materials for electrochemical energy storage, discovered MXenes, demonstrated the tuning of structure and porosity of carbide-derived carbons, and developed new processes for the synthesis, surface modification, and purification of nanotubes and nanodiamonds. He also published the first microscopic observation of water inside carbon nanotubes and discovered polygonal nanotubes (graphite polyhedral crystals). He is recognized as a Highly Cited Researcher in Materials Science and Chemistry and a Citations Laureate by Clarivate Analytics (Web of Science).

He has received numerous awards for his research, including the Ceramic Prize from the World Academy of Ceramics, the Materials Research Society (MRS) Medal, the American Chemical Society (ACS) Award in the Chemistry of Materials, etc. He has been elected a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, the World Academy of Ceramics, the European Academy of Sciences, and many professional societies. He holds honorary doctorates from several European Universities.
