Exfoliated oxidenanosheets: new solution to nanoelectronics

Author affiliations


Two-dimensional (2D) nanosheets obtained via exfoliation of layered compounds have attracted intense research in recent years. In particular, the development of exotic 2D systems such as stable graphene and transition-metal oxide nanosheets has sparked new discoveries in condensed matter physics and nanoelectronics. Here, we review the progress made in the synthesis, characterization and properties of oxide nanosheets, highlighting emerging functionalities in electronic and spin-electronic applications. We also present a perspective on the advantages offered by this class of materials for future nanotechnology.
