The recent research on graphene and other atomically thin materials has introduced a plethora of new phenomena and applications. This flatland research has so far excluded all metals, because they have been considered too unstable in atomically thin structures. Contrary to beliefs, however, recent experiments have demonstrated that atomically thin metals can indeed remain stable in suitable nanostructures. In this project, researchers from the Nanoscience Center, University of Jyväskylä investigate these flat metals and their phenomena, stabilities, and fundamental properties using systematic computer simulations. Flat metals could enable fundamentally new phenomena, such as a new phase of matter, atomically thin liquid. Among phenomena and basic properties, researchers also investigate applications that would best take advantage of the novel properties of such flat metal nanostructures.
