We employ data-driven methods to discover new two- and one-dimensional materials. Layered materials have attracted interest for technological applications and fundamental physics. But only a few van der Waals solids have been subject to considerable research focus. Through data mining, we identify 1173 two-dimensional layered materials and 487 weakly bonded one-dimensional molecular chains. This is an order of magnitude increase in the number of known materials. Moreover, we discover 98 heterostructures of two-dimensional and one-dimensional subcomponents that are found within bulk materials, opening new possibilities for van der Waals heterostructures.
To identify these materials, we present a novel data mining algorithm that determines the dimensionality of weakly bonded subcomponents. Chemical families, band gaps, and point groups and single-layer piezoelectricity of the materials identified with data mining are presented. Moreover, we expand on this work to new material compositions that can form layered materials.
