Focus on Women in 2D Materials Science

A recent study led by Dr. Zeila Zanolli of the ICN2 Theory and Simulation group, on spectroscopic properties of few-layer tin chalcogenides, has been published on a special issue of the Journal of Physics Materials. This edition, called “Women’s Perspectives in Materials Science: 2D Materials”, will feature exclusively researches directed by female scientists, with the aim to highlight the excellent contributions of women to 2D Materials Science.
