The speaker will present a theoretical study on the growth mechanism of low-dimensional nanomaterials, the understanding of various experimental puzzles based on heoretical results, and the realization of the controllable experimental synthesis. The talk will cover
(1) the theory of nucleation and growth of carbon nanotubes and the strategies towards the chirality control during growth,
(2) the theory on the mechanism of graphene CVD growth and the strategies toward the quick synthesis of wafer sized graphene and its controllable growth, and
(3) the kinetics of 2D materials growth and etching and the experimental control of their morphology.
These studies clearly showed that, beyond the calculation of various materials properties, theoretical exploration also can play a vital role in experimental design and material synthesis.
