OCRE Success Story: Exploring new high potential 2D materials

A University of Bath research group uses OCRE-funded cloud supercomputing to predict new 2D materials and identify valuable properties of recently discovered 2D semiconductor materials. Understanding the quantum properties of these new super thin materials with promising applications in electronics, healthcare, and new energy materials requires advanced scientific facilities and techniques.

Exposing 2D materials to the powerful X-rays produced at a synchroton beam facility is one of the most effective ways of studying electron behaviour in the materials. The process generates vast amounts of data that researchers are able to analyse using sophisticated cloud computational modelling funded by OCRE.
