Two-dimensional sheets combine many remarkable properties in a single, atomically thin package. For example, a graphene sheet can be made into a high-performance transistor, but it is also the ultimate realization of a thin mechanical sheet. In this talk, I will discuss some of the fascinating properties of these materials, touching on everything from creating the world’s thinnest bimorph to the electric and mechanical properties of broken-symmetry ground states.
