Andre Geim,Regius Professor of Physics; Royal Society Research Professor; Director, Centre for Mesoscience & Nanotechnology, University of Manchester.  In 1987, achieved PhD from the Institute of Solid State Physics, Chernogolovka, Russia. After graduation, continued to have been worked for 3 years as Research Scientist at theInstitute for Microelectronics Technology, Chernogolovka.  In 1994, as Associate Professor, University of Nijmegen, Netherlands and in 2001, as Professor of Physics, University of Manchester, UK. 

Among Geim's research career, published over 200 peer-refereed research papers, including >20 in Science and Nature. More than 60 of the papers are cited >100 times, with 15 cited >1,000 times each, and two cited >10,000 times. 

So far, Geim has achieved kinds of awards because of Geim's excellent research. Those awards included Mott Prize in 2007,  EuroPhysics Prize in 2008, Körber Prize in 2009,  John Carty Award from the US National Academy in 2010, Niels Bohr Medal in 2011, Copley Medal in 2013. On October 5, 2010,  The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov were awarded Noble Prize in Physics for “ground breaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene” .  

Title:Graphene and Beyond from a Fundamental Perspective
SymposiumPlenary Lectures
Starting Time
Ending Time

Following the advent of graphene, many other one-atom or one-molecule thick crystals have been demonstrated. These isolated atomic planes have become one of the hottest topics in materials science and condensed matter physics, and the interest is still growing, without any prospect of fading for many years to come. In addition, isolated atomic planes can now be reassembled into new designer materials made layer by layer in a precisely chosen sequence. I will overview our group’s recent progress on the fundamental understanding of two-dimensional materials and their assemblies, trying whenever possible to describe implications of the advances for industrial applications.
