Electronic structure of 2D materials: Theory meets Experiment

Electronic structure of 2D materials: Theory meets Experiment

This workshop will take place at Diamond Light Source in Oxfordshire, UK, on July 18th/19th July 2017. This workshop is jointly funded by the UK's EPSRC, by the CCP9 Collaborative Computational Project, as part of the "Theory Meets Experiment" series, and by Diamond itself.

The workshop theme will be electronic structure measurement and prediction for layered materials. The main goal of this workshop is to stimulate discussion between experimental and theoretical groups into the challenges and opportunities in the electronic properties of two-dimensional materials. A central theme will be electronic structure prediction in two-dimensional materials, correlated quantum matter effects, and modelling the photoemission process to allow direct links between experiment and theory. The experimental focus will be on probing electronic structure and many-body interactions using angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES), and the new opportunities afforded by spatially resolved ARPES with sub-micrometre resolution (nanoARPES). The new I05 beamline is dedicated to the study of electronic structure by ARPES: tours of the I05 facilities will be available during the workshop and newcomers to ARPES and nanoARPES are welcome to attend.
