This roadmap was developed within the framework of the Graphene Flagship and outlines the main targets and research areas as best understood at the start of this ambitious project.
The roadmap highlights three broad areas of activity. The first task is to identify new layered materials, assess their potential, and develop reliable, reproducible and safe means of producing them on an industrial scale. Identification of new device concepts enabled by 2d materials is also called for, along with the development of component technologies. The ultimate goal is to integrate components and structures based on 2d materials into systems capable of providing new functionalities and application areas.
Eleven science and technology themes are
identified in the roadmap. These are: fundamental science, health and
environment, production, electronic devices, spintronics, photonics and
optoelectronics, sensors, flexible electronics, energy conversion and
storage, composite materials, and biomedical devices. The roadmap
addresses each of these areas in turn, with timelines.Nanoscale, Issue 11, 2015
