Atom-Level Innovations: Rice’s Big Bet on Advanced 2D Materials

Rice University’s Boris Yakobson has secured over $4 million in federal funding to advance research on 2D materials, composite interfaces, and nonequilibrium chemical processes. His projects aim to improve production methods for 2D materials, explore quantum-level material dynamics, and develop predictive synthesis models. The research will benefit applications in energy, defense, and electronics, focusing on accelerating crystal growth, understanding material behavior under extreme conditions, and enhancing the performance of composite materials. This work emphasizes Rice’s significant role in advanced materials science.
