The National University of Singapore (NUS) announced it will open a new research center that will focus on 2D materials. The so-called "2D Materials Center" (2MC?) will receive $40 million USD in funding in the next 10 years from the National Research Foundation.
The NUS Graphene Research Center, which opened in 2010, will become a part of the new 2D Materials Center. The 2MC will have about 50 researchers from multiple disciplines. In addition to graphene, two other materials that will be the focus of initial research will be Phosphorene and Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2).
