U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) researcher Dr. Nick Glavin has teamed with academia to guest edit a special edition of the prestigious scientific journal Matter. The January 2023 issue highlights special reports on the development of a new class of materials known as two-dimensional (2D) materials and heterostructures.

Glavin, Senior Materials Engineer in the Polymers and Specialty Materials branch of AFRL’s Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, and Dr. SungWoo Nam, Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California Irvine, also contributed a research article to the special collection titled “2D Layered Materials and Heterostructures:  Past, Present, and a Bright Future.” The publication examines the history of 2D-layered materials as well as outlines a path forward for this class of materials.
