Graphene enables ultrafast laser pulses for spectroscopy and biomedical applications

Graphene enables ultrafast laser pulses for spectroscopy and biomedical applications

Graphene Flagship researchers have developed an optical fibre laser that emits pulses with durations equivalent to just a few wavelengths of the light used. This fastest ever laser based on graphene will be ideal for use in ultrafast spectroscopy, and in surgical lasers that avoid heat damage to living tissue. Read more

Graphene supercurrents go ballistic

Graphene supercurrents go ballistic

Researchers with Europe's Graphene Flagship have made the first direct observation of ballistic mirroring of electron waves in a 2d system with supercurrents. The discovery could lead to the use of graphene-based Josephson junctions in such applications as advanced digital logic circuits, ultrasensitive magnetometers and voltmeters. Read more

Graphene Week 2015 – from science fundamentals to low-cost production

Graphene Week 2015 – from science fundamentals to low-cost production

Keynote presentations on the third day of Graphene Week 2015 offered an eclectic mix of fundamental science and practical chemical engineering. Here we report briefly on each of the talks, beginning with an introduction to optoelectronics in 2d semiconductors and heterostructures, and concluding with an outline of a highly promising 'kitchen sink' approach to graphene production.

Graphene Week 2015 looks at the electronic properties of 2d materials

Graphene Week 2015 looks at the electronic properties of 2d materials

Graphene Week 2015 was buzzing with activity throughout the University of Manchester venue, with more than 600 delegates presenting and discussing their work, networking and making plans for the future. Each morning of the conference was given over to plenary sessions, with keynote presentations from invited speakers. Here we report on the Tuesday plenary, which was devoted to the electronic properties of graphene and related layered materials. Read more
