Exotic Properties of 2D Materials; Energy Harvesting and Superconductivity

Dr Khagesh Tanwar, Instituto de Ciencia Molecular (ICMol), University of Valencia, Spain

2D Thermoelectrics are used to convert heat energy into electrical energy which are useful in low-power next-generation electronics. Use of 2D materials in thermo-generators offer immediate advantage due to their unique electronic, thermal, and mechanical properties. The thermal properties of 2D materials can be greatly augmented by coupling them with magnetism in 2D limit. Moreover, in the 2D limit of materials, highly correlated states such as superconductivity can be realised by controlled p-type and n-type doping.

The seminar explores the interesting properties arising from 2D confinement of materials, and their applications in the next-generation technologies.

Dr Khagesh Tanwar is a postdoctoral fellow at University of Velencia, Spain. Khagesh’s current research is focused on developing thermoelectric generators based on 2D materials and understanding the coupling between their thermal and magnetic properties. As a casual research fellow at IFM, he was focused on DFT based theoretical investigation on superconducting states in twisted bilayer graphene. During his PhD at IFM (Deakin University), he developed Li-metal polysulfide batteries using experimental and DFT investigations. He worked on thermal properties of bulk materials as a research assistant at India Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur, India.  Prior, he did his bachelors and masters from IIT (BHU), Varanasi, India.

Khagesh has published 20+ articles in high quality international journals with over 700 citation on google scholar.
