Rodney S. Ruoff, UNIST Distinguished Professor, Department of Chemistry and the School of Materials Science, is director of the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials (CMCM), an IBS Center located at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) campus. Prior to joining UNIST he was the Cockrell Family Regents Endowed Chair Professor at the University of Texas at Austin from September, 2007. He earned his Ph.D. in Chemical Physics from the University of Illinois-Urbana in 1988, and he was a Fulbright Fellow in 1988-89 at the Max Planck Institute für Strömungsforschung in Göttingen, Germany. He was at Northwestern University from January 2000 to August 2007, where he was the John Evans Professor of Nanoengineering and director of NU’s Biologically Inspired Materials Institute. He has co-authored about 480 peer-reviewed publications related to chemistry, physics, materials science, mechanics, and biomedical science, and is a Fellow of the Materials Research Society, the American Physical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Royal Society of Chemistry. He is the recipient of the 2014 Turnbull Prize from the MRS, the SGL Skakel Award from the American Carbon Society in 2016, and the James C. McGroddy Prize for New Materials from the American Physical Society in 2018. For further background on some of his research see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rodney_S._Ruoff . If of interest, his Google Citation H-index is 142, I-10 Index 414, 25 publications have been cited more than 1000 times, and 6 more than 5000 times.
We discuss: (i) ‘artificial crystals’ giving one recent example from the lab; (ii) fabrication of large area single crystal metal foils (Cu, Ni, Co, Pd, Pt) by achieving ‘collossal grain growth’ and some of their uses including (iii) in growing “absolutely perfect single layer graphene” with no adlayer at all and (iv) in making diamane, as well as (v) in understanding why wrinkles appear in single layer graphene with some metal foil substrates and not others. I will also present (vi) about the synthesis of polymer precursors for diamond and their conversion to diamond; and (vii) about gradient porous structures composed of graphene oxide sheets or after carbonization at 2000C, of ‘graphenic’ sheets.
