Exploring the 2D world
Our research aims to understand the optical and electrical properties of 2D materials to design novel devices. We use advanced characterization techniques and micro-fabrication technologies to explore and investigate the emerging 2D materials for device applications. Our research is generously supported by funding from the European Research Council .
We are exploring emerging 2D materials for new devices which cannot be realized by conventional materials.
Opto-electronics on paper
We show a new class of optoelectronic devices on a piece of printing paper using graphene as an electrically reconfigurable optical medium.
We demonstrate active thermal surfaces capable of efficient real-time electrical-control of thermal emission over the full infrared (IR) spectrum without changing the temperature of the surface.
