Topic: Two-dimensional materials form excellent building blocks for new optical devices. In my talk I will discuss this exciting and relatively new class of materials and their potential for light emitters for optoelectronic devices. I will discuss the opportunities for nano-structuring these materials for novel light emitters, e.g., via external dielectric manipulation, while also (briefly) discussing the challenges such a special class of materials poses for the theoretical description.

CV: Michael Lorke, born 1980, is a PostDoc at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Bremen, co-speaker of the semiconductor division of the DPG and member of the AGYouLeaP (Young Leaders in Physics). The focus of his work is the junction of atomistic materials science and theoretical physics. The goal is the material-realistic description of new materials for opto-electronics, especially for lasers, single photon sources and light sources for quantum computing.

Following the lecture, there will be a get-together where participants can exchange ideas with each other over pizza and drinks in the Remise and the garden of the Magnus-Haus.

The event is sponsored by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation.
