 Project objective

MXenes, a new family of transition metal-based 2D materials, have garnered a lot of interest due to their intriguing properties and potential in many applications. Recently, they have exhibited impressive optical properties such as broadband absorption and surface plasmon excitations, underlining their potential for photonic and plasmonic devices. At this early stage of development, large scale synthesis and processing of MXenes is lagging behind other 2D materials, leaving the opportunities for optoelectronic applications nearly uncharted. Therefore, this project proposes to investigate using MXenes for optoelectronic memory applications. In particular, the project proposes three main activities that capitalise on the strength of experienced researcher and the host research group (Prof. Andre Geim) in 2D material synthesis and optoelectronic devices: (1) development of processes to synthesise new MXenes, (2) development of doping strategies to functionalise MXenes and (3) development of optoelectronic memory device for image capture, where plasmonic and photosensitivity of MXenes will be exploited. The synthesised MXenes will be characterised using various advanced microscopy and spectroscopy techniques. The result of the proposed project will be transformational functionalities with orders of magnitude improvement in terms of large scale preparation of 2D MXenes with controllable functionalisation and beyond. The success of this project will make a substantial contribution to one of the European Union main concerns on developing nanotechnologies and advanced materials. Overall this proposed multidisciplinary project brings benefits to both the applicant and the host institution (University of Manchester) in terms of mutual knowledge transfer, joint publications, new collaborations and networking activities and personal career development of the researcher as well as increased public awareness about research resulting from ambitious outreach program.
