UNDERSTANDING THE SELF-ASSEMBLY DYNAMICS OF 2D MATERIALS AT FLUID-FLUID INTERFACES
Two-dimensional (2D) materials represent a class of scientifically fascinating and technologically relevant particles that have atomic-scale thicknesses (<100 nm) but colloidal-scale lateral dimensions (~102 – 104 nm). 2D materials can preferentially adsorb at fluid-fluid interfaces, yielding a “2D colloidal system”, and there is growing interest in the assembly and deposition of 2D materials from a fluid-fluid interface for uses in next-generation, thin-film applications. However, the 2D nature of a fluid-fluid interface produces a different interaction environment for interfacially adsorbed ...
