报告题目：Computational Discovery and Design of 2D Dirac Materials
报告人：Prof.Aijun Du, Queensland University of Technology,
Graphene, a two-dimensional (2D) honeycomb sheet composed of carbon atoms, has attracted intensive research efforts due to its unique electronic structure, i.e. Dirac cone.
The cone which represents linear energy dispersion at Fermi level gives graphene massless fermions, leading to various quantum Hall effects and ultra-high carrier mobility. Our recent research mainly focuses on predicting new 2D/3D Dirac materials by state-of-the-art density functional theory method. In this talk, I will present our recent key research findings on Boron-based 2D Dirac materials [1-2], novel 3D Spin-polarized Dirac half metal material  and 2D van der Waals Hetero-structure with strong electronic coupling .
