Theoretical design based on first-principles calculations play an important role in the discovery and innovational research of 2D materials. Recently, our group has proposed a series of novel 2D electronic, magnetic and optoelectronic materials: (1) 2D semiconductor with high carrier mobility including monolayer delta-Cu2S and eighteen monolayer oxides; (2) monolayer group-III monochalcogenides by oxygen functionalization as 2D topological insulators; (3) functionalized SbAs monolayers as spin–valley-coupled Dirac semimetals; (4) monolayer MnB, CrSCl and CrSeBr as 2D ferromagnets with high Curie temperature.

Prof. Jijun Zhao received his Ph.D in condensed matter physics from Nanjing University in 1996 and became a professor in Dalian University of Technology (DUT) in 2006. He is currently dean of school of physics in DUT and director of the key laboratory of materials modification by laser, ion and electron beams (Ministry of Education). His major research field is computational materials science with special interest in clusters, 1D and 2D nanostructures. He has contributed about 500 refereed journal papers on Science Advances, Nature Communications, JACS, Advanced Materials, etc., which have been cited by about 16000 times. His current H-index is 62.
